I don't know who to address this to but I now there are ATP members who can help me out here. I love the easy way this site is set up. Easy login, easy to navigate, tree mail, etc. What is missing for me is a separate place where we can catalogue our daylily seedlings with a picture., just like we do with our personal plant list. I grow a ton of seedlings. It would be much easier for me to have a separate seedling list. Perhaps this section could be a subsection of our personal plant list. Right now I have seedlings mixed in with my named daylilies I own. And the picture of my seedlings does not look like the plant I am growing. I would like my own picture taken from my garden of my cross. I don't know if this is feasible or how much more bandwidth this would require from the site. But if it's at all possible, I hope that the powers that be on ATP might entertain this request. Hurray! It would make it so much easier for those of us who grow seeds. Thanks so much for listening.

Hi Alex

It would get you part way to create a Category in your Plant Lists for daylily seedlings.
But I think the photo in that list would be whatever the Plant database itself decides is the best photo for that plant (and it changes from time to time, I think based on how many thumbs each photo gets.


Your Profile
There are XX plants in ARosebulsh's Plant List
access your Lists Control Panel.
look far left ... "Manage categories"
create a category

I'm afraid I don't remember and don't see how to put a plant into two categories, or indeed where to assign a plant to one category or another!

And you still would not have the option of selecting a specific photo to display.

You could set up a blog entry that was mostly a series of links to the daylilies you wanted to document as seedlings, and then paste in your private photo of the seedlings. But you could also do that in a Word doc.

P.S. I'm sure your photos of daylily seedlings would be widely appreciated if you added them to the plant database, or wrote an article showing differences between seedlings of different daylily types.

By the way - someone once said that they wanted small-diameter, tall, clear tubes for seedlings of SOME slow-growing plant. Might those have been daylilies? I've been saving tall skinny water bottles when I see them discarded: 2.4 inch diameter, 7 inches tall.

Thank-you so much for your informative response. Yes, I understand your instructions, and will give it a try. But it seems a very round about way to list our personal seedlings, pictures of those seedlings for all to scrutinize, and marvel over when the child is so different from the parent. I realize that in the Spring and summer months there is always a place to display our seedlings on the daylily forum, but quite often we forget about that important cross, we want to go back and study.**** I guess my hope is that ATP can figure out a better way we can have a personal seedling list with pictures of our own crosses,**** not from the daylily database which is only for named daylilies. So many of us who are members here are amateur hybridizers and seedling growers, who I believe are working diligently to advance the species, or just enjoying there own crosses. After all, from every great daylily bloom, a plant was crossed, a seed will appear, and a seedling will grow.

I will set up a blog to reference back to the sub category of my personal seedlings. Since I work from a Mac Book Pro, I don't think I am able to use a 'word' document.

Thanks so much for answering my question.

Alex

I do have another suggestion; start a Cubit on Dave's sister site, set it to private so only you have access to it if you wish and then design either a database for your seedlings or just put in in a running thread like mine below. (I never updated, I moved and a lot of things went by the wayside Rolling my eyes. )
http://cubits.org/Suehomegarden/thread/view/45784/

and here is the database I started before we were able to add them here. Since any info and detail is hand entered, you can create any kind of category.
