nylon strapping

Sometimes used to secure packaging for heavy items, like reams of copy paper. It is usually about 1/4", white or translucent and needs to be cut with scissors or knife or pulled apart at the seam.

Anyway, you can cut these up to 3-4" lengths or so, and use either a fine or super fine sharpie to write down the plant name variety and stick them in the dirt next to your plants as identifying markers.

Great idea!

Sharpie & felt-tip ink disappears in the sun & rain, so I apply a clear coating of craft sealer (to my plastic spoon "labels") after the ink is thoroughly dry.
