Hmmmm ... another "similar"?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Luster Leaf Rapiclip 6-Inch Garden Plant Labels - 50 Pack 840 (Lawn & Patio)
Ordered the ones from the Hypdoponics Market, which were $6.98 with free shipping versus those from Amazon.com at $5.24 with free super saver shipping eligibility since I did not plan to order other products. All shows up on the order & emailed receipts from Amazon & from Hydroponics as "Luster Leaf Rapiclip 6-inch Garden Plant Labels - 50 Pack 840 SKU: AD-HGPM50".
However, what I got were 50ct packets of 6-inch "Hydro Farm Jump Start Reusable Plant Markers" HGPM50. Still, the label on the packets states: "Works with pencil so it can be erased and reused!" This appears to be true on the first two labels used just as they arrived.
They are NOT "Luster Leaf Rapiclip 6-inch Garden Plant Labels - 50 Pack 840 SKU: AD-HGPM50" as ID'ed on the invoice.
And, if we can believe the package image on Amazon.com, the Luster Leaf Rapiclips appear to be the thickness of a Popsicle stick or maybe a bit less, -- unless the smallest visible font size on the display package is less than 6-point type. The Hydro Farm Jump Start plant markers are flimsy. These seem the type of plastic seen on labels for shrubs & trees. They are the thickness of card stock, like index cards.
Hopefully these will last at least the season, but I won't know until it is late winter. I am also hoping they won't begin to curl over in the wind or shrivel contortedly in the heat of summer, even if North Carolina summers are not terribly hot.
So how reusable are they? Are they as durable as the Luster Leaf Rapliclip? If not, I may just go back to the wooden popsicle sticks from the Dollar Store ... less surprise, less shipping & hassling.
