  Reading Illegible Plant Tags
From: Don Burns <donburns at macconnect.com> on 1999.05.01 at 18:33:43(3316)
Its been some time since the topic of reading illegible plant tags was
brought up. With so many new people on the list I thought I'd bring it up
again hoping that someone would have some new solutions.

I have two white plastic tags originally marked with lead (graphite)
pencil, #2 I suppose. The marks are faintly visible to the naked eye, but
not legible. My usual technique for reading labels in this condition is to
dampen them and place them under a "black" light. But this trick is not
working.

Suggestions anyone?
