I’m pretty bad at keeping plants alive, and I have had a basil plant for a while that can attest to the number of times I have almost let it die. For some reason, I just wouldn’t think about watering the basil plant until it was almost completely wilted. I’m getting better and better at this, but the amazing thing is that the little plant would bounce back so quickly, going from wilted to vibrant in no time!
I thought it would be cool to capture the process on camera, so I let the plant wither a little bit, then I watered it and set the camera to take a picture of the plant about 8 seconds for a couple of hours while the plant slowly came back to life… here’s the result. In case you’re wondering, the sweet guitar melody is just a little something my brother recorded on the fly years ago, but I thought it went nicely with the video.
