I don't like this site much. Ever since they changed the way it looks and functions behind the scenes, my experience with it has massively gone downhill. And they're not listening to anyone about what they got wrong. (it's time to fire an upper-level executive, it sounds like) A new change is approaching, apparently. My Watch list now has a banner at the top that says "This page is so last year. Update your browsing experience". But I'm hesitant to try it, as they've screwed up everything else thus far, if I don't like it, will I actually be allowed to return to the previous, not-quite-so-bad interface? It's especially concerning because the thing you're supposed to click on is not a URL. If it changes things, I can't just use the Back button to get out of it... Unlike other artists, I do a variety of different art styles (mostly photography and 3D modelling) and this is the only site that appears to freely permit such a broad range of interests. While I'm already on other art sites

Hmm. My Tiger's Jaw succulent is definitely growing. The dead part in the middle (visible in the last photo I've posted) has started to get squished by the new growth! Photos once things calm down for me, and I figure out how to take pictures of such a thing.

Dead Succulent

Well, it turns out that I definitely did overwater my Royal Flush succulent. When I first got it, there was a single leaf at the bottom of the stem (not that I could see the stem, given how fat all the other leaves were), which eventually had what little water it contained sucked out of it, before it fell off. When I first got it, I had no concept of what "dry soil" was. As a result, I watered it at least once a week. I gather this is what caused it to split the newest leaves so quickly, as the base of both leaves would have swelled with more water, forcing the two sides to split apart. But, just as you're not supposed to use any nitrogen-based fertilizer, or it'll bloat and rot, overwatering it does the same thing. Just, without the obvious bloat. Eventually, I figured out that weighing the whole thing is the most reliable method of seeing how much water is left in the soil. It got down to 73 grams as the lightest it ever got before I watered it again, and I know this because I logged
