Plant Videos

Plants-In-Motion is a nonprofit, educational site that has a large number of quality videos of plant movements, including germination, photomorphogenesis, tropisms, nastic movements (probably my favorite category), circadian responses, growth, and flowering. Most of the videos are time-lapse, though some are real time. The only problem I've encountered is that while the author says users can copy the videos for educational use, I haven't been able to save them to disk.

If you thought that all plants did was sit there and photosynthesize, then you need to watch these videos. It's just as much fun as watching the grass grow (in time-lapse video). Really! (via Prashant Mullick)
