When I first purchased this orchid it had two burgeoning buds on the end. When the biggest one began to unfold, it seemed to happen quickly. It’s amazing how such an intricate flower could start as such a simple bud.
So I decided to set up a timelapse with my old iphone and see what I could capture.
The below 24 second video represents 26 hours of pictures
I started recording at 5:30pm on Friday
And stopped recording at 7:30pm on Saturday
(I had to adjust the camera once because of the lighting)
And just like that, a beautiful new orchid flower in 24 seconds!
