The Rise and Fall of Titan #3

This is a cool time lapse of Titan #3. The pictures were taken with a Plant Cam borrowed from the WIU Office of University Relations. It begins on June 16th when the inflorescence was only 29 and 5/8 inches tall with the camera taking one picture every three hours. On June 24th, you will notice the whole plant has been rotated approximately 180 degrees. With the opening of the spathe getting closer, the Plant Cam is reset to take a picture every hour. The 6 p.m. picture from June 29th is of me attempting to pollinate the Titan. The 10 a.m. picture from July 1st has myself and Dr. Edwards caught taking male and female flower samples.
