Mysterious Plant Growing Within Seconds

Tue, Apr 21, 2015

Take a look at the video below demonstrating how easy it is to produce a stick-in tags for your plant labelling. It appears that the plant is growing/moving upwards and outwards in the transition between 27 seconds and 29 seconds. The time between the two shots is only a couples of minutes in real time as I had to record the shot a couple of times to get it perfect. Is the plant growing or is it moving towards the lights at the side of our studio? Can plants actually grow this quickly? What is the fastest growing plant you’re aware of? Let us know in the comments section below.
