More about tags

Here is my high-tech numbering system for my orchids. It is a plastic pot with all the unused numbers on green tags.

When a plant is sold, traded or dies the white tags goes with the plant and the green tag goes back in the box. Before I do that I update the computer so that the next time the website is updated the inventory will be correct.

The back of the white tag also has the inventory number and re-potting dates. When I get a new plant I take any green tag out and that becomes the plant ID in my greenhouse.

This system evolved because I found that a strictly online system got out of date easily. Now I can work with the plants and use the green tags to get the computer back in sync.
