This last weekend I set up my timelapse of roots growing. A week ago I planted a shoot of mint in a glass container. They are known for growing pretty fast so hopefully will be a good choice. I made sure that they grew along the side of the container by sectioning off one half of it and putting in complete darkness.

A few days later roots started to grow and I decided to make a place to photograph it. The roots have to be in darkness because the roots grow away from the light, so I built this out of curtain black out lining and a lot of safety pins. There is a hole for the lens and the flash and a timer is taking a photo every 10mins.

The results are looking good so far and will hopefully carry on!
