Community Standards
Please keep posts somewhere close to on-topic, use cuts or links as a courtesy to people with slow connections, play nice, be respectful
and keep comments constructive- we're all learning and we've all overwatered or underfertilized, it could happen to anyone.
Feel free to post links or pimp other communities, but please keep those on-topic and don't spam us.
Membership is open to anyone, so please try to keep it fairly clean- we all have personal journals for our more off-color and adult material! :)
