I had a 3" pot of Trichodiadema densum made up from scrap pieces of root from the job lot and the plants were alive but looking a bit sad. I've potted them all with 7 singles and then three back into the 3" pot. They have nice fleshy tap roots so I'm hoping they'll now get busy.
I'm using a Brother label printer I acquired for less than £10 in an end of season sale from a national postal plant supplier. The mains adaptor was about the same price, they're very heavy on batteries so get the adaptor. The tape is generic and I prefer the transparent to the white or coloured. That is not a big outlay if you go for the generic.
I've not noticed any fading of the print over time. However, plastic labels do not last for ever, I've had some that deteriorated in less than 30 years
stevebooth: I don’t begrudge them the Sphagnum, it’s what is with it that I covet, plus they seem to totally remove the top layer and use the lower levels, I have hopefully rendered many of the pots more birdproof this afternoon.

stevebooth: The first new outside pitcher of the year has opened today, that’s some difference to the greenhouse plants. The flowers are looking nice though.
