When I photograph plants, I tend to include a standard #2 pencil.  True, the length of the pencil changes as it is used; but all standard #2 pencils I have seen are the same diameter, and this can be used to judge the length.  And, a pencil is an item one is likely to have anyway, whether working with specimans in the greenhouse or the field.
