Plant clips

Just a thought but I always buy my plant clips at the dollar store (Hair clips) they basically have the same ones - well, except for the nice dragon flies... but I buy stars, flowers and butterflies... all sizes..... Check it out some time...

I do that too, Golden! And I buy all kinds of sizes, too. I don't just use them to clip vines back into a hanging plant, but I use them to clip vines along my shelves or up the woodwork on a window, to the blinds... They're handy for sure.

Exactly Denise! The nice thing about the dollar store ones is - as you say - they do come in larger sizes... so for instance my very large carnosa has all kinds of vines that need to be held up... so one large one does the trick ....they work well - at least for me - lol
Mindu I am not trying to take away from the very nice ones the hoya shops sells - its just convenience for me and most times they are only a dollar :0)
Nice to see you back Denise!

I bought 1000 dragon flies from chula.
(GG- your dream come true?;)

And OMG I will never run out. So I use them for hair, plants and decoration. And if they get broken, I dont care too much.

But you gals have a point, they are only good for clipping a vine or two into place!

Yep, that's the plan. My Hoya calendar entry is going to be me in a bathtub full of them.
