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

Amaryllis Sophisticate Timelapse

Perhaps my favorite timelapse yet. I love how the bud just builds and builds until it pops open in a single moment.

It just explodes. Seriously, they open that fast? I never would have guessed. Great footage…and love seeing your Tlapes. Matti

Very cool! I love your videos, Derek… I want to time lapse some stuff now!

We need to get everyone together and do another plant dork meeting…

This flower is so pretty. Is it by chance a miniature? The flower looks like it is smaller than most but I can’t tell if that’s just because it has such narrow petals or it really is small.

Thanks, Matti!

Tom: I wouldn’t call it a miniature, but it is a bit smaller than the usual Amaryllis bloom.
