Info is getting worse, not better?

I've seen more succulents in hole-less pots in the past 12 months than all previous decades of "plants-ster'ing" combined.

Every day I see a multiple posts about snake plants that say they will bloom after becoming rootbound. Holiday cacti will bloom if one stops watering them at a certain time.

Every day, advice to leave water sitting so the fluoride can evaporate.

Discussion about what to use to treat a milkweed plant with aphids.

Orchids come with a tag that says to water with ice cubes.

And so many people giving advice like, "well mine died after a few weeks, but here's how you care for it..."

Why is bad info spiraling out of control faster than people can even read it?
