This is very successful at another forum that I visit. Essentially what this does is create a place to post and discuss topics that are not necessarily important enough to warrant starting a new thread over. As there is no set topic, the discussion topic at hand can be changed at any time. Thoughts, musings... daily discoveries... if you have an amusing funny image you want to share... all is welcome and encouraged. Don't worry about disrupting the current discussion; off topic is the entire point.
This is NOT a place for spam, arguments, etc.
I hope the mods give this a chance, because if (big if) this takes off it can be a fun and rewarding thing.
I will start.
I have recently gotten a number of succulents, something that I am new to, and I was really excited about them. I was setting them up on the shelf when I dropped the Crassula 'Spring Time' pot. Now, dropping plants is never a good thing and often damaging, but something that I had not considered until too late was how HEAVY water-filled succulents are compared to the light potting mix, and how fragile they are. It fell upside down and the plant almost completely shattered on contact with the ground. And I mean shattered, each leaf section breaking off and going every which way. I was devastated. Luckily each of those leaves can be used to make a new plant but i have never really done this with Crassula, and the worst part is I have absolutely no idea how long it took for the plant to grow the size it was previously at since it was a new acquisition. I hear it is very slow growing.
On the upside, I hope I end up liking it because hopefully i will have alot of it. If anyone is interested, I assume that if they take I will have more than I will know what to do with. Still, it sort of sucks.
Also, this was hilarious
