Growing kidney bean & spinach plants, soil cross-section time-lapses

See a kidney bean plant germinate, spreading its roots and sprouting up and up with its undulating green leaves, in this cross-section time-lapse by YouTuber GPhase. Each shot is captured 9 minutes 36 seconds apart at 30 frames per second, a fourth attempt at showing the roots up against the glass in the soil cross-section as it grew. (Roots were hidden in previous attempts.)
