Journal September 25, 2012

The above represents my first attempt at time lapse photography by stitching digital still images into a video.

It appears somewhat crude, but I learned a lot from this test.  First, I need to change the cycle to capture an image every 10 minutes to make the motion flow more smoothly.  And, the lighting needs to be improved, dramatically.  

One surprise I found when viewing the video, is that tomatoes apparently have a circadian rhythm governed by the photoperiod.

The video shows three days growth of a Trust tomato in a grow tent using a LED grow light.
