Dave,
I have several photos for Sempervivum heuffelii cultivars that are not showing up in the Jovibarba database when searched. They also are not showing up in the new photos added.
The Jovibarbas Database

Also won't show up when searched for from the above page.
The only way a search for them works is using the Database search. And the photos do show up on the Database search page.

Hi Lynn, they're likely not showing in the Jovibarba's database because the cultivar name has been included in the Latin name field instead of the cv. name field.

I just corrected Job's Beard (Sempervivum heuffelii 'Cheese Lemon') and it's now showing up in the Jovibarba's database instead of the Sempervivum Database.

Evan's right. The cultivar names do not belong in the latin name field. That's just for the genus and species.

There is a separate field for cultivar names.

I didn't catch that when Wolfgang created new entries. I will do a better job of watching for those errors.
Thank you.
