A few times when I have sat down to finish my list, some of my plants aren't accepted. It says, enter the plant name, I believe after I have entered the name
But the Have/Want doesn't come up because of it, I think
Thanks for any help

That comes up as Coneflower (Echinacea 'Southern Belle') in our database.
Click on 'Status' and enter that you have the plant,
then click on 'add the plant' in the lower right.

Nope still won't let me I entered it just as above
I'll reboot my computer and see if it is on my end. My avatar was missing for a few days this last week, has that ever happened to you?

When things get weird, sometimes it helps just to refresh the page. Then, if that doesn't help, close the browser and restart it. And if that doesn't work, re-boot the computer. That usually solves all my problems. Usually. Smiling

Hey, @woofie,
Somewhere there is a spot that says "add this plant to your list" while we are viewing a photo of a plant. My brain can't remember how it works.
Can you please direct Jolana? Thank You! Lovey dubby

Oh, yeah, if you're viewing a plant in the database, over in the left column, if you scroll down a ways (and sometimes it's quite a way down) there's a place to click "Add this plant to your list." And if the plant is already in your list, it will say instead "In your list." But you have to be in the main entry, where all the photos are. It doesn't show up if you're looking at a single photo in the DB.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Thank You! That was fast!

Okay, Jolana, using the same Coneflower as the previous example, to to this page:
Coneflower (Echinacea 'Southern Belle')

and scroll all the way to the bottom to see the words 'add this plant to your list'.

Hurray! Hurray!
(I'm excited because I bought 4 new plants...)

September 2013 NOID from North Charleston plant swap:
Thumb of 2015-07-04/greene/48463e
The tag had some blurred words ending in 'daisy' so it was a mystery plant.

Mystery solved in 2015; it was a Stoke's Aster:

Wow, lol

I once saw a young girl at a swap with sunflowers that were actually dandelion, bless her heart
