One of the problems with starting plants from seeds is keeping track of which pot has which seeds. I have long since given up trying to label the containers with the whole name of the plant. Now I number my pots and keep a log of the plant names. I would write the number on a Popsicle stick and stick it in the pot. This worked out pretty well except for one problem: often the stick would turn dark and I could not read the number.
Have a fun day!
