How To Make Database Plant Tags

By clintbrown
September 13, 2013

I was frustrated with my plant tags always fading or falling apart over time. If the ink doesn't fade, usually the plastic tag breaks to pieces over time. Therefore, I decided to create my own interactive, yet inexpensive tags that would last longer and be easily replaced.

Dave recently modified the information on the ATP database to include the QR code. I know that I can right-click the QR code in the database and "save image" -- would that work and eliminate the need to go generate a QR code at that other website?

It's been there for a while and I edited the article to let the reader know how easy it is. No more generating QR codes! Just copy 'em straight from the page.

I couldn't remember how long it had been there -- the things you give us make our lives so easy it's hard to remember they were ever *not* there. nodding

I edited the article to use clear duct tape. It is much better!
