Meow meow, meow meow meow!
Believe it or not, we had a c(more…)
hatBot write our title this week. Oh the wonders of science. Speaking of science: plants. Plant science. Sciency plants. planty planty planty science. Now!
Playing around with the ploidy level of plants
We recorded in advance but then Joram edited late so overall it evens out to just be a day late in your feed. Not that you care, we know you live life like us, one moment at a time, not knowing what day of the week is today. At least we hope you do so we look less messy. Anyway – plants!(more…)
We are back from the break! We are completely different but also pretty much the same so come along and learn about mucus seeds, pink cotton, dandelion physics and a play performed by two very much non-actors.(more…)
While plant science missed out on yet another Nobel prize, you are not missing out on yet another great plant science episode. We have a hairy balled plant, some evidence about ATP and a whole Can of Spinach!(more…)
Party of Pokers
They trained dogs to search for underground orchids and we trained ourselves to talk about it. Amazing.(more…)
Turn humans into moss
Last week, we wanted to be moss and this week science has listened to us and turned human (cells) into moss. Well kinda. Not really. A little bit. Still, we’re excited to become moss.(more…)
We are mosses
If we could choose, we’d be mosses growing on opposite sides of the same tree.(more…)
Big British Cheese 1
Would you trust us if we spoke badly about cheese? This, and other science facts in our newest plant science show for you!(more…)
It’s not you, it’s us
Sometimes, technology makes our lives better. On other occasions, it makes it much harder. This week was one of those times, the recording equipment failed on us. We still did a fun show full of cool plant science, it just doesn’t sound as nice. Sorry!(more…)
A thirsty secret
We’re back from our holidays and we brought a big bag of plant facts from the last couple of weeks of plant science!(more…)
We’re on holiday!
No big plant news this week, we are on holiday for a couple of weeks! Talk to you soon!
The sexy mixing
This week, we learn something new: have you heard about apomictic propagation? Well, now you have. We also bring the hottest news from the plant science world.(more…)
Why do trees collect clocks?
We have a lot of questions this week that even we don’t know the answer to. This is your time to shine(more…)
Hey tree, are you my friend?
Hi! Would you like some cool plant facts? We have a fresh new paper about biofortified tomatoes that give you your daily dose of vitamin D, a new oldest tree and an explanation of why catnip likes to be a cat bed.
