The first 11 days
@grow_slow is a meditation on nature and technology. Every morning at 10:17 am, a webcam takes a photo of my fiddle-leaf fig plant and tweets it.
Often, I'd be going about my life, happen to take a glance at my plant and think, "huh, when did it grow so fast?" I found it easy to forget that plants - being alive and all - are not just household decorations, but organisms that move and change and grow.
The internet is fast, but plants are slow. This project is an experiment in combining those two things. @grow_slow follows the philosophy of the Slow Web. Any one picture might be mundane by itself, but as a collection, they become interesting over the course of time.
Very professional webcam setup
The plant is watered once a week, usually around Monday evenings.
