    Can this guy be a male Poison Ivy in the next The Batman film?

    I want to know why my Swiss Cheese plant isn’t growing. It’s not dying, but it’s also not growing. It’s just stagnant and that makes me worried :c

    Joey is an inspiration to all of us citizen scientists (aka amature, self taught scientists).

  4. Sazi on August 4, 2022 at 12:03 am

    As handsome as he is educated and articulate; the bee’s knees of botanists.

  5. Pranav Kakkar on August 4, 2022 at 12:04 am

    I like his Chicago accent.

  6. LordAwesome Tony on August 4, 2022 at 12:05 am

    That’s not symbiotic

  7. Raaaawrrrrrr on August 4, 2022 at 12:05 am

    Oh. So this is what he looks like. Not what I expected, what a thrill.

  8. Kyle Hassett on August 4, 2022 at 12:06 am

    Sebastian Plant-iscalco

  9. headybrew on August 4, 2022 at 12:07 am

    "That’s all I got. Have a good rest of your day. Bye" — Am I the only one who expected a different phrase there? Haha. Love this guy. 🙂

  10. Constant Disappointment on August 4, 2022 at 12:09 am

    superstraight and attracted to this man just cos of the accent and working class pride
    funny how that works

  11. Senor Cardgage on August 4, 2022 at 12:10 am

    I’m in love!

  12. Goldena Medina on August 4, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Please talk about the horrible fire that is burning the oak trees. 😧

  13. KT Reznin on August 4, 2022 at 12:12 am

    WHICH WISE GUY PLANTED THESE ONIONS NEXT TO THE ASPARAGUS! I’M GARDENING, HERE!

  14. The Savage Wombat on August 4, 2022 at 12:14 am

    "Have a good rest of your day. Bye." WTF?

  15. Armin F. on August 4, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Never have I seen a community cus so much in every tweet

  16. Crmsnraider on August 4, 2022 at 12:16 am

    Quality.

  17. Tinderbox on August 4, 2022 at 12:16 am

    That question really didn’t need to include an f-bomb. But millennial vocabulary.

  18. Johnny Marz on August 4, 2022 at 12:19 am

    this guy is so fuckin sick

  19. ElroxVGC on August 4, 2022 at 12:21 am

    This dude reminds me of like a mob guy that got into botany on the side.

  20. Marissa Persaud on August 4, 2022 at 12:21 am

    I love you my guy😍😍😍

  21. Harmun Uthnab on August 4, 2022 at 12:22 am

    Everyone talking about his tats, but I was not expecting that accent.

  22. LegendaryVirgo on August 4, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Probably my fave video so far

  23. MARLON MENTERO on August 4, 2022 at 12:26 am

    Does Buddhas Belly is a family of Ginseng? Does this plant has a poison component?

  24. Sarah Julianne on August 4, 2022 at 12:28 am

    I know why he got into botany and so do you.

  25. Arthvision on August 4, 2022 at 12:29 am

    Must say I love how straight forward all this ppl are on these interviews, so I can stay up all night looking for random information.

  26. Brendan Dean Visual Art on August 4, 2022 at 12:30 am

    lol, he’s hilarious

  27. Phat Man on August 4, 2022 at 12:31 am

    I love this guy, he’s forcing me to confront my internal biases.

  28. NinjaAdorable on August 4, 2022 at 12:32 am

    This was surreal… a man sounding like a Mobster talked about plants and botany.. in great detail and in quiet cerebral fashion!!

  29. Melanie Sipko on August 4, 2022 at 12:32 am

    anyone else absolutely obsessed with the way this guy talks

  30. tazzarooney on August 4, 2022 at 12:34 am

    I know nothing about plants… Thoroughly enjoyed watching though!

  31. Jorge Suza on August 4, 2022 at 12:37 am

    Crime pays but botany doesn’t!

  32. Clint Davis on August 4, 2022 at 12:40 am

    This guy should be snatched up by a university ASAP. He is 💯 the type of teacher who can reach/inspire students interested in the field.

  33. Ruby Buttons on August 4, 2022 at 12:40 am

    I feel like if I don’t start taking better care of my succulents this guy is going to take me for a drive! 😄

  34. Kinevil on August 4, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Man, I wish I had this guy as my biology teacher. I would have been more interested in class.

  35. Bing Bong on August 4, 2022 at 12:44 am

    And he sounds Italian too!

  36. alister towelie on August 4, 2022 at 12:46 am

    this is so cool. science is so cool

  37. dik2bik on August 4, 2022 at 12:48 am

    have u ever had to whack any plants in your profession?

  38. Shayan on August 4, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Is wired going bankrupt? What’s up with the awful audio? You can’t get some sound dampeners?

  39. Tabetha on August 4, 2022 at 12:48 am

    I’m only somewhat interested in the topic of the video, but I just love the raw, natural city personality and accent

  40. Alucard on August 4, 2022 at 12:48 am

    "Deadly Nightshade" is in the genus Atropa, not Solanum but yeah

  41. W B on August 4, 2022 at 12:50 am

    I love his TikTok.

  42. randomanimeinu on August 4, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Philodendron =/= scindapsus, usually I see scindapsus labeled as pothos

  43. M Å on August 4, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Using plants as medicine rarely works for another reason. You often need very high concentrations for it to be effective. You would in some cases need to eat several kilos within a short time to get the same amount.

  44. Lana Jig-maker on August 4, 2022 at 12:53 am

    I love this guy xD. He’d be the best Botany teacher .

  45. Jessica America on August 4, 2022 at 12:54 am

    She thought that mushroom was a werewolf, ha ha ha!
    (joke)

  46. 7 1 2 5 on August 4, 2022 at 12:57 am

    I’m in love with this guy lol

  47. Bing Bong on August 4, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Succulents and cacti are terrible beginner plants because beginner love to over love their plants ie, over fertilize, Over water, etc. best beginner plant I’ve noticed is pothos, super easy

  48. Dylan Wickund on August 4, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Im fucken walken here

  49. Gino Garcia on August 4, 2022 at 12:59 am
