I collect data of tree species per sample plot using QGIS and QField.

Plots (Provyta below) is a point layer with a relation many to one to a table with data of all tree species found at the plot.

Once data is collected and I click the point, go to tab Data which is the referenced table, see first screenshot below.

The 5 and 6 is the fid of each species, I would like it to display the species name instead (Tall, Gran). And just above, where it says 3 (which is the plot fid) I would also like to choose some plot attribute instead. Is this possible?

I cant figure out how, there is no such option in the Form layout of the plots?

You must go to the layer properties and choose the right attribute for Display option. You can use an Expression if you want to show more than one

I use the Display function with a small expression as Nelson mentioned.

in combination with labeling

It looks like this

Labels next to the trees
