When I looked at my ginkgo seedling in its egg carton pot today, I decided to do two things:
Re-pot it despite its young age and to make it the protagonist of my next time-lapse video.
The re-potting gave me the opportunity to take a picture of it in its full dimension, roots and ginkgo seed and all. And quite a strong root it has compared to lemon trees, for example.
Setting Up The Time-lapse Project
Then I set upon arranging for the next time-lapse video. Made some place for the ginkgo pot and the Raspberry Pi with the camera module.
This time, I tried to get a better image section right from the start. Last time, in the time-lapse of the lemon seedlings, they grew to tall for the section.
I encountered a bit of a snag when I entered the source code into the Raspberry Pi command console: I wanted to take pictures for 40 days, but apparently somewhere between 21 and 28 days, there’s a limit. So I settled for 21 days. However, I have already made a note in my calender 21 days from now to restart the sequence. A picture will be taken every 2 hours.
So, in the end, the command line runs as follows
raspistill -o ginkgo%03d.jpg -tl 7200000 -t 1814400000 -w 1280 -h 720
