Video: Time Lapse of Grass Growing – Macro

The preview version on Youtube is embedded below:

A time lapse video of grass growing after being cut. Grasses are a bit different than most other plants because they have intercalary meristems, which allow for cell division/shoot growth from any node on the grass. Most plants grow from apical and lateral meristems only. Thus, the grass will actually appear to push upward, while other plants grow only from the tip.

The total video was just under 4 days with 10 minutes per frame, and a 30fps final video.
