"I have not tested whether the lack of irrigation option on community property reappeared when plants threaten to dehydrate."

In my experience, when plants on community property in large planters are visibly dehydrated, the watering option is still unavailable. Though I didn't track the gardening skill level(s) I experienced this at.

 

And in response to your overall message, right, thanks for all your detailed observations. Really hoping this all gets cleared up soon. Until then, hopefully the Tend Garden ability can serve as a workaround.

Right. I have now also tested the community properties for drying out. Rule 2 can be extended with the addition that from horticulture level 2 on square planters, even if there is a risk of drying out, there is no option for casting on communal land.

 

Rule 4 and 5, on the other hand, can be extended with the addition that from horticulture grade 7 on round planters or soil at the risk of drying up, the option of casting on all types of land appears again.

 

I have tried the plot rabbit hole with the square planters.
With square planters, a lot of programming went wrong. A rule 8 from my various tests states that scientists never touch square planters.

 

I have written down these rules so as not to be constantly confused about which plant substrate I can use when and where.

You have to learn that like vocabulary. Tomorrow an exam will be written. Let's see how many programmers pass the exam.

Dunno which July this is, but yeah, me, too. I took it to be a new normal thing that was eventually going to be fixed and wasn't. All of my saves are like this, old and new, with and without mods. I think it started when I got Seasons a year and some ago, but I'm not positive. Bugs the crap out of me. The neighborhood plants never recover from having been cut from, either, even if I stay on the lot overnight. Can't fertilize, can't water. They don't spawn weeds, so I assume they don't NEED watering, but their little health bar thing is tiny and I've had more than a few die.

Do you plant in boxes or without? 

I found out that it worked for me without the plant box. Standard smile 

 

This toppic is not for the plants ind the wild but on a lot. Standard smile

I'm referring to off lot plants

I am also seeing this problem in the Community Garden lot in the Port Promise neighborhood of Evergreen Harbor. I can Fertilize, Research, or Take Cutting, but there is no Water menu item available on any of the plants in the planters. Debug set state to wet does change the brown plant to green. If I delete a floor tile and move a plant out of the planter onto a ground tile I am able to instruct my sim to water it.

Yes. I have this problem in the community garden with plants in planters. I edited the lot and moved the dry plants to the ground and then they were able to be watered. I tried editing the planters to see if I needed to rotate the plant or planter but that does not solve the issue.
