Fun and scientific
I like how this podcast gives an insight into their personalities and also includes fun tidbits of info that are easy to understand and access
Greg over here spreading misinformation about PLANTS!
Do not put rocks at the bottom of your plant pots!! Greg is wrong! You are not helping your plants in anyway, and will cause your plants to develop route rot by creating a perched water table.
Greg, cmon. Where is the research buddy? Go talk to an experienced gardener and you’ll see what I mean.
4/5 stars because Greg is spreading PLANT MISINFORMATION. Otherwise, Mitch and Greg are two peas in a pod growing on an indoor pea plant in a pot with a healthy mixture of top soil and potting soil with NO ROCKS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POT.
Repent to the plant gods and correct yourself, that sweet 5/5 star rating will return. 💕🌷
So funny and so smart!
You guys are amazing! This podcast is a great way to get your science fix and laugh and feel good about the world at the same time. I’m recommending this to everyone!
