This post:

had a pending edit proposal. The user who proposed the edit was unable to add the tag , so I clicked the 'improve' button, added the tag, and approved the edit.

The tag disappeared. So I clicked 'edit tags', put it back in, and it disappeared again.

What's going on here?

The tag is a synonym for (along with ), so if you try to use it, the system will remap it to automatically.

If you click through the link, you'll see that it shows "germination" at the top right (perhaps not the most obvious place to put it, admittedly). The list of synonyms is also available from a link on that page.

See Should the [seed-starting] and [germination] tags be synonyms? for more information.
