DIY "Tea Bag" Label for Plants! 1. Find a large mug, and put your plant in place. 2. Staple a small strand of twine/string between a small folded rectangle. Label one side with your plant’s name, and the other side with the care instructions. Snip off two of the corners. 3. Attach a paperclip to the other end of the string to help bury it in the soil.
