Default BEST METHOD FOR ID'ng PLANTS

Hello:
I am sure someone out there has the "best" way to id their plants, particularily under water ids...

I have tried a sharpie, pencil, dymo labels, so far, nothing is holding up....

I grow orchids and for above ground or above water labels, it isn't a big thing.... one of the best ways is to write out your plant id on a label then spray the label with a clear laquer spray paint . once it drys, it is perpetual or let me say i haven't had one wear out that way

but....... i am not having as much luck with labeling for underwater plants....

looking for ideas here folks.....

Sharpie on the glass works for me, but once you've been in the hobby for awhile you will just know what you have and ID by looking at it. If you want you can even draw a top down view of your aquarium on a piece of paper and label it that way. What I've done over the years is just write down on a piece of paper what their name is and I can always check back to that if I don't remember.

Print the pics of plants you have, paste them in file or scrap book and write their names.
