I failed to secure my labels onto my orchids, so they became separated, some forever. On my really good orchids, I now attach my labels using a hole punch and wire onto the stake and wire that keeps my orchids together. This way they will never be separated. Some folks will put multiple labels within their pots, and some will even bury an extra label in the media. Remember, labels especially plastic ones have a short lifespan, so you want a good quality vinyl label.
We have even used old vertical blinds and aluminum as labels. I like to keep additional information like , last repot, origin of the plant, last bloom, number of flowers, flower description, last fertilizing, etc.

The detail and accuracy of these hand-drawn prints were amazing, right down to bug bites on the stems. Cycnoches Egertonianum. Proper staking and grooming can make a big difference in how orchid flowers appear. I bet if I do everything just right, I can get that daggum orchid flower to come out of that plant.
It was a sweet little thing that made me smile to look at it. There are tricks for that. Get it? And, the most important thing is to use a little-bitty pot. If that plant is still wobbly, put a stake next to a stem and twist-tie them together. If the plant wants to fall over, put that little pot into an empty bigger pot.
