Artistic Plant

Cover Image for Artistic Plant

Ever wondered what you can do with the stone of a mango? A friend of mine showed me how to plant it and get a small mango tree. But it needs time to start growing, so to see an actual progress I've setup a daily snap device with a raspberry pi.

Well...and did more artsy stuff with the pictures.

The setup

A raspberry pi with a camera and a lot of paper tape (btw best invention of human kind) makes a picture every morning from a growing mango seed.

The seed is planted within a gardening kid.
