Writing in industrial permanent sharpies and wrapping in clear packaging tape should work for at least a year.

This may not be of any help, but I thought I'd pass along what I started
using this year.

I mainly grow in plastic pots and I've always used the plastic stakes that
are time consuming to keep up and often get knocked out of pots or broken off.

This year I started using a DecoColor Opaque paint marker and writing the plant
name on the side of the pot.  I tried white, silver, gold, and black, and found
white worked best for me- really stood out on the pot.  It lasts quite a long
time, too, but is easily removed with a swipe of nail polish remover (even the
non-acetone kind)  They are made by Marvy and run about $2 each.

I heard somewhere that Plant Delights Nursery also uses them.

I'd send a photo to the list, but I don't think we can do that, can we?
