You can license this video for commercial purposes at This is a time lapse video of a dwarf sunflower growing from seed to full flower, then wilting. A version with a beautiful musical score can be found at Unfortunately the flower was too heavy and it collapsed the plant at some point. This video also illustrates the centripetal anthesis present in sunflowers, where the outer flowers mature first and the maturation process extends inwards. I would have attempted to get it to go to seed, but these sunflowers tend to be self-infertile. Providing time lapse videos which illustrate concepts in plant sciences.

    How did you supply the plant with light as it grew? What did you use? This is the problem I have when making time lapse videos…plant goes into shock during video because it's been removed from window. Flourescent lights distort coloring. Any suggestions?
