Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

Crinum moorei Bloom Timelapse

Remember that Crinum moorei that started out as the most potbound plant ever and later produced a stunning flower? I’ve been keeping an eye on it with the ol’ PlantCam, and produced this video of its journey over the last few weeks.

Those smaller flowers you see are toad lilies, aka Tricyrtis, and it’s their first bloom as well. The plant they’re resting on is Begonia luxurians which is a recent favorite. Special thanks to FM Campers for allowing me to use their great song, Maytown, in the video.

Cool timelapse, Derek. And I enjoyed the music. At first I thought you had some Polyphonic Spree or something.

Great. Now I’m not only jealous of your multi-day blooming Crinum I’ve got begonia envy too.
