I have had problems in the past using different methods to tag my water lilies. Tags get pulled by fish, ink washes off, etc. Last year I tried using tape on the pots, narrow electrical tape. However, after a year the glue gave up and I still have no idea whats what till they bloom.
This year I got a 10 pack of different colors of electrical tape (the good stuff!). Using long sections to not only tape to the pots but tie it so it can't come off (hopefully). I'm using corresponding colors and then labeling the tape for any others. This should give me the ability to ID a lily at a glance while its still in the pond.

@mrsclem Depending on the make up of your pots, you could drill a hole near the top edge, “string” the tape through the hole, and tie it off. It would be like a streamer, but the fish shouldn’t be able to remove it.
