Humidity and plant tags

Hello, Jen, from your friends in South Florida.

We have experimented several, times with the problem of humidity, rain,
fading sun and plant tags. Using the permanent marker with the traditional
white plastic tags is a bit affected by the rain, but totally vulnerable to
the sun. Black markers fade even when faced away from morning sun or hidden
under plant growth.

What we have found works the best are carpenter's crayons in red. You can
get them in the hardware or big box store, and they have been used by us on
wooden stakes as well as the little white plastic tags.

Hope this helps.
