After the Sept 5 2019 update, the plants at the lab are not dying but still can only be watered once.  It is hard to complete the daily tasks, since many of the tasks involve watering, harvesting or ordering co-workers to garden.

Quick Fix

 

I just found this thread because I have the same issue. Not even the debug menu to set the gardening state would allow sims to interact fully with the plants.

 

I discovered that a quick fix is to move the plants directly onto the ground outside (not in planters). This appears to free up the full gardening menu. The moment they are moved back into the building the options are limited again. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it for now. Then you can deal with the non-growing issue using the debug cheat menu, or a mod. Wink

@crinrict I can confirm in my game at least as I have multiple scientist playable households that you cannot water plants in the science lab. You can. Grow new ones, they reach a certain point and the next time you come back they will not grow anymore because you cannot water them. They still die.

I also cannot water my plants in the scientist career.  I even deleted the greenhouse the plants were in and replanted them all.  Still haven't been able to water.  I also planted a few plants outside in the regular ground and they are not growing and I cannot water them either.

I am also having this issue.  The plants cannot be watered and they eventually die.

To water a plant simply plant a new seed and after the sim has planted it the option will be there to water.
