    I have often toyed with the idea of putting "dog tags" on the Sarrs in my bog. The tags do distract, so i usually shove the label down as far as I dare, without it getting buried and lost.

    Never a good idea to get rid of them totally. Go below soil level if you dont like them. And another pet peev. Don't send a plant out with no label......I have gotten 6 different neps in one box before with NO labels. It doesn't help the original owner new the plants by sight. Doesn't do me any good. I have an 8x8 green house that id getting full. I cant remember them all.

    I don't use tags in mythe sarracenia displays, and have a terrible time telling the difference between leucophylla titan, tarnok, typical. Big mistake. Especially if they don't flower due to springtime hail storms lol

    Sharpies are a horrible. There are many horror stories - someone pots their plants - marks them with sharpie & notices later that they have all faded & they can't tell many of the plants apart.

    One of the best approaches is Brother P-Touch labels. There are several threads about them - you can label either a marker or the pot & they are quite indestructible.

    The organization-freak in me likes to have them all labeled, but aesthetically I hate seeing tags sticking all over the place, so I do what Tony said - cut them down and bury them a bit.

    Never, ever use a Sharpie if you expect to read your labels six months down the road. I have used the Artline Garden Markers for over ten years now and the plastic pot tags degrade from UV exposure long before the marker writing fades. I have a few that are 8 years old now and still entirely readable.

    I find plain ol' #2 pencil works very well (on a light colored tag) -- definitely far better than a Sharpie. Been using this on my orchid tags for years.
