Time-Lapse Video of Stone Pine Pinus Pinea

I stopped the time-lapse project today, because the seedling was growing too tall and anyway, there was only waving about since the last couple of days. See for yourselves:

This time, I left the light on during the night (except for the first night). So, whenever you see a yellowish light, that’s night. There’s almost a complete day missing, because…now, let me think…it stopped recording and I hadn’t set my calender or something.

I used the Raspberry Pi Camera and the raspistill function again. One picture every 20 minutes this time.

First Pine Seedling

The first stone pine seedling has unfolded its branches almost completely this morning. Looks so weird. I showed some friends on Facebook the pictures I had added to the post about the stone pines germinating and one of my friends wrote that it looks alien. It certainly does. Yesterday evening, when it started unfolding, it looked quite creepy, like a green spider very slowly unfolding its legs. Yikes.

Note that it has 11 branches. What an odd number. I wonder if they always have 11. I will see with the next one in a couple of days.
