One thing I like about time lapse videos of plants is that the logic of their biology becomes more apparent, e.g., searching for light, footholds, etc. They move like animals but more slowly and by different mechanisms.

Would have wished for better image quality and less jumps, but it's my own fault. Should have used a better camera and should have bought a larger microSD card. Oh well.
Well, Ok... there are, technically, some glitches in this time lapse - but frankly, who cares? I certainly don't! :) I found it captivating, and it was fascinating to see the interaction between adjacent plants.
Thanks for posting - superb! :bravo-009::th_salute:

This is a great video. It’s a reminder of the motility of biology — movement that is slow and steady and beneath our moment-to-moment awareness. The only thing about “watching grass grow” (as a metaphor for boredom) is the pace, not the wonder of growth.
Well done.
