I’ve always loved timelapse videos of plants growing or dying. And in this video, Jens of Another Perspective shows us how white mushrooms grow. And just as I love eating them, I loved watching them in this hypnotizing timelapse.
Jens bought mycelium and grew white mushrooms from scratch. He filmed them over the course of 30 days, showing their full development. He played a bit with the video near the end and reversed it, so it looks as if the mushrooms are shrinking and going back into the soil. It’s even more trippy than watching them grow, and I loved it.
Jens promises to share another video with some behind the scene shots. He’ll teach you not only how to set up your gear for shooting a timelapse like this, but also how to grow mushrooms at home. Considering how often I eat them, it might be more affordable for me to follow Jens’ tutorial and grow my own. But joke aside, I’ll make sure to update the article and add the BTS video as soon as it’s up. In the meantime, enjoy the absolutely hypnotizing 30 days of mushroom growth in only 2 minutes.
