labeling seeds of hippeastrum by cross pollination

I use those little plastic key tags they give you when your car is serviced.…

I write the pollen source on the bottom.  If the pollination takes, I write
the pod parent above it when I harvest the pod.  I used to worry that this
didn't give me a record of failures, but since discovered that pollinations
that failed several times can take for no apparent reason, thus
rationalizing my laziness and willful ignorance.
Since chloroplasts and mitochondria are almost exclusively inherited from
the mother, it's a good idea to keep the naming in the right order as they
can lead to different results in many plants.  One example is cytoplasmic
male sterility can occur when American chestnut burs are pollinated by
Chinese chestnut pollen.  I also see morphology differences in reciprocal
crosses in Crinums where the hybrid morphology tends to resemble the pod
