The only thing I can add is use a good waterproof marker. Some of them are not so waterproof as claimed as I found out the hard way 2 years after returning from holiday. The person that sold me some succulent pelargoniums wrote the name with a white ink marker on the black plastic pots. He told me that would last for a least 4 years. I'm trying that now also.
