Plotting the wavefunctions for the hydrogen atom with Wolfram Alpha

Hello! I was trying to plot the radial parts of the wavefunctions for the hydrogen atom. I entered the expression for the wavefunction, specifying that r > 0 but Wolfram Alpha returns a plot for r < 0, as well.

Here is what I got.

psi1

psi2

Is there something else that should be specified to get the desired plot?

The range specification for r should give only positive values, for example

Plot[R[r],{r,0,rmax}]
