Creating an iPhone time lapse movie of pine cones closing and opening

I put some pine cones in water to watch them close up. It took about 2 hours.

I had to put my tripod in the sink to get a low angle shot. I used the Glif tripod adapter.

I put the iPhone in airplane mode so it wouldn't vibrate.

I put the pine cones under a warm light to try to get them to open. They barely budged after 4 hours. I tried another 4.5 hour time lapse the next morning (about 12 hours after being out of the water).

It's a lot easier to get them to close. Getting them to open up again takes a long time.
