This is our final episode – before we have to go on a break because Joram can’t stop procreating and will have to raise yet another newborn human.

episode 103: DNA spikey, enzyme no likey – monitoring H2O2 live, seed inspiration, cheatgrass

Some people say, Joram is too close to still being sick in this episode. Those people are wrong. Joram is just a pretentious stuck up golfer who will never speak again with air freely travelling through his nose. So there’s that.

episode 102: Eiersollbruchstellenverursacher – sea slugs, cool new wheat, talking ducks

Who’s got one foot and so many chloroplasts? Well, not this guy but this weird sea slug. We talked about our friends the chloroplast stealing sea slugs before, and today we bring news on them from a recent study.

We did it!

It wasn’t always easy. It was no walk in the park. But with perseverance, focus and endurance we made it to 100 mostly plant science facts! I think we all deserve a round of applause, a pat on the back and a new hoya for the living room. Enjoy!

The world’s worst guessing game (100 facts pt. III)

They didn’t think we could do it and then we did. This is batch three of four, with the facts 50 to 75 in our countdown (countup?) to 100 mostly plant science facts.

Wow, they're really doing it (ep. 100 pt. 2)

We underpromised and overdelivered: You wanted 100 facts, we gave you that and a bit more over the span of 4 episodes. This is batch 2: 26 to 50. We have trees, marine microorganisms, old trees, lasers and a plant that cannot die.

Episode 100 pt 1: The facts awaken

episode 98: Praise be the Dick Rocket – Tragopogon, Bethany Nichols, AI protein prediction

This week we’re inspired by a giant dick rocket making its way into space (and also back for some reason). Before we go back to shopping online to fund the next space mission, we’re talking some awesome plant science. #inspiring
