Timelapse Video: A Day in the Life of a Pot of Herbs

Yesterday, I made a timelapse video of the day in the life of one of the herb pots I am growing on the roof (1 pm – 10:30 pm). I choose to focus on the ‘Rose Petal’ thyme because it’s blooms were attracting a lot of tiny little bees and pollinators.

My favorite portion is around the 8 seconds remaining mark when the light has dimmed and the parsley plant begins stretching one of its leaves upwards.

Night time is red, rather than black because of the annoying security light next door that blazes through the evening and all through the night.

The video was made using a Plant Cam Digital Timelapse Camera (that I bought myself). I love it! Expect more videos in the future.

  1. i love it! i have often wondered if that plant cam would be good or not, but this video certainly cinches the deal for me!

  2. Loved it! I wonder if it could be slowed down just a bit, a bee would appear and be gone in half a second, it made it a little hard to see them. : 0)
