Thumbs up

I like these suggestions... the skewer and also the weighing of the pot. I'm going to start doing this...

Weighing the pot is a nice idea. Possibly time-consuming if there's too many orchids though. But for a limited number of orchids, it should work well. Could write the 'dry' weight value on the tag, so you have the reference value on the tag for convenience.

I just judge the weight by the feel (heft) of it in my hand. Who would have time to physically weigh each pot?
