Mixed up name tags grrr

Started my tomato seeds this morning and dang it all, I got the tags mixed up! I guess for the most part its neither here nor there since I know all the seeds are the same in each tray, I just don't know which tray is which! The only one that's really driving me crazy is the one container variety, because I don't want to inadvertently put that one in the ground and one of the others in a container. It's 'silvery fir tree' and I'm hoping it's name-sake leaves will make it stand out from the others by the time it goes outside. I knew things were going a little bit too well this year lol.

Ok, I can get some clues from the leaves of some. For example, How many Potato Leave you had in that mix tray and how many RL. If one tray is all the same there will either all RL or PL.

Silvery Fir Tree, You can tell it from a mile. I happened to to have just one seedling (18 days old) myself. I can easily tel which one it is without looking into the tag. It has sharp teethed small lobes.

Not sure on the leaves of the other kinds, like I said, I'm not too worked up about those, Ill find out which is which by the time the season ends haha. Good to know it will be easy to tell the SFT though, since that's the only one not going in the ground.
