    Link: Time-Lapse Water Lily - Fascinating footage of the largest Water Lily on earth. A clever plant that knows 2 things: survival and reproduction.

    Wait, did we just watch plant porn? And if it is plant porn, it`s pretty kinky stuff, holding a partner captive in a prison of pollen. There should be laws againt this kinda thing!

    Viking, there`s a chance it smells pretty disgusting. Alot of plants in that kind of enivironment have evolved to cope with the huge amounts of competition, and thereefore present a smell similar to rotting meat, as this atrracts the largest amount of possible pollinators.

    lmao _Perfection_ I was thinking along the same lines as well. Those lily pads were scary; in contrast the flower was just awesome.

    A plant that only knows two things: Survival and Reproduction.

    That basically describes every plant on earth, and many animals as well. What else would the plant be planning to do?

    It wouldn`t be more effective if it was hexagonal since the lilly doesn`t care about its neighbours getting enough light. It only cares about itself getting enough light. And for maximum area for minimum border it grows in a circle.

    these time-lapse things are always cool. for some reason, things sped up and things slowed down are always fascinating.
