Marking Pen for Plant Markers

  • An ideal pen to use for plant markers
  • Ink is kept fresh by means of a ball valve
  • Ink reservoir holds 8 to 10 times more ink than similar markers

This marking pen is a great companion for any zinc-plated or steel plant marker. The fiber tip is better than the felt tip found on other markers because it won't flatten with use.

              Ink bleeds on wood markers!

                As stated in the heading, these bleed like crazy when used on the wooden plant markers sold here. So, don't purchase if that's what you intend to write on with this pen. Sharpie markers also bleed on wood, but much less so than this pen does.

                  I use this on my plastic plant markers. It
                  works great and doesn't fade in the hot
                  Florida sun.

                    Comments about Marking Pen:

                    Two things: First of all, I read all of the comments before I purchased this item. What I discovered is that if I followed the directions carefully, this marker was very effective. But I had to shake, and then press the point down until the ink began to flow. If I stopped writing for more than a few minutes, I had to repeat.

                    Second, we recently had over 10" of rain in less than 2 weeks. None of the markers I used this on "ran". (I purchased the aluminum plant labels at the same time.) Now our heat index has been between 100 and 110 degrees and I haven't noticed any fading. We rarely have ice or snow so I can't say how the ink/paint will fare in that weather, but here in SE Texas it works great.
