Post Fast growing plants?
Does anyone know of any super fast growing plants? I'm guessing that four or five days would be considered fast growth for a plant. However, are there any plants that can grow to a fairly mature stage within 24 hours? Is that possible?

Although Ive done a fair amount of time lapse in the past involving various subjects, Ive never done plants before and I'm considering giving them a go. I want to start with an easy plant that is very fast growing in a short amount of time. If it is indeed possible to get hold of a plant that can grow significantly with 24 hours, then I wouldn't have a need to have lights activated by interval timers. Most of the time, I could leave the curtains open, allowing sunshine into the room, stimulating plant growth. Then every once in a while, draw the curtains closed, turn on the studio light / lights, expose a frame, turn off the light and open the curtains again. I don't mind doing this manually within a 24 hour window.

I spent 3 years shooting plants and I never used an interval timer on the lights - I also shot my plants in a closed room without windows and very little acess so as not to disturb the setup. That said a very fast blooming plant is the day lily it blooms and dies in one day. Of course the faster the plant grows/blooms the shorter the interval.
