As forecast, the bulb began to sprout, and then flower. I set it up on white marble in a sunny window in my studio and recorded a 3000 frame time-lapse of the flower opening over a period of 3 hours. The flower was stunningly beautiful, flaunting it's bright red stigma sexily against the brilliant violet petals. Several days later, a second flower emerged and I captured a second time-lapse sequence on black marble, then a series of still frames on my 80MP Phase One IQ280 medium format system. This is the result.
