From pinecone to pine tree, a 300-day time-lapse

Watch more with these video collections:

A conifer cone or pinecone is the seed-bearing part of a gymnosperm, which “reproduces by means of an exposed seed, or ovuleβ€”unlike angiosperms, or flowering plants, whose seeds are enclosed by mature ovaries, or fruits.”

In this Boxlapse video, a female pinecone opens over the course of the week, ready to disperse its seeds in warm and dry conditions. (If it was wet or humid, the pinecone’s scales would swell shut to protect the seeds.)

Watch as the seedling pops out of its seed, and begins to grow its needles upward from its center. Just over 100 days, new branches seem to form, and by day 300, the pine tree is a miniature version of its mature form.
