I have the dahlia Bahama Mama and had it last year. The page I see says "in your list" and yet it doesn't show up as though I grow it or even have it.
Dahlia 'Bahama Mama'

Am I doing something wrong?

Or, it could be because you have more plants in your list than will display at once (the upper limit is 500). Someone suggested narrowing your selection to either a category you are using (mine are by type of plant and also specific features) or even just the flower group. It's a bit of an extra step, but seems to be a good work-around unless/until we get a secondary search feature for our lists (I think Dave is cogitating on this, so maybe that will come at a later date). At the moment, if you search for 'haves' you get your entire list of current plants. If you narrow it down to 'dahlia' you get not only your current dahlias, but also your dead ones and wish-list ones. Another person suggested creating a separate category for dead plants and for your wish list, but that seems duplicitious to me (we already have used to haves and wants) so I haven't done that. I can see how it would work though. I just roll with the system we have.

Just use the "View only genus" right above your list and select from the drop down menu to narrow the field. Thumbs up

I wasn't checking by any view list, just a single entry. All is fine now, thanks.
