This is most impressive compilation of brilliant Blooming Cactus Flowers timelapses you will see and is absolutely hypnotizing.
Videographer Echinopsis Freak manages to capture these rare moments on film through time-lapse, and as a result, the psychedelic video footage is absolutely hypnotizing.
Created by filmmaker Greg Krehel (also known as EchinopsisFreak), this time-lapse video shows a dozen types of Echinopsis cactus flowers blooming (and then wilting.) These types of flowers bloom overnight and then last for one day, he explains in the video’s description. They’re at their “peak beauty” for just one or two hours.
Echinopsis cactus flowers bloom overnight and the flowers last for only a day. Actually, the flowers are at their peak beauty for an hour or two at the most… The cacti shown in this video come from my collection… Most of the clips in this montage show approximately 8 hours of change as the flowers open and bloom…
Blooming Cactus Flowers
“With their garish colors, their crazy shapes, and the contrast between spiky parent and the flowers, the cacti provide the drama,” Krehel writes. “My job is simple: bring their freaky nature to your attention.”
