Time-lapse of Cactus Blooming

I made a time-lapse video of a cactus blooming.  This cactus sits in a shady area of our balcony. Yesterday I noticed that it was going to bloom, so I set the time lapse camera up to start taking pictures every thirty seconds beginning at 8:00 AM.  This 24 second video captures about 3.5 hours of cactus blooming.

Here are some stills from the beginning, middle and end.

Pavonia Rosera

I think this is an interesting plant, it's a Pavonia Rosera. There are blooms all over the plant and the blooms last a long time.

I bought three passion vines this year and this one bloomed for the first time.  The other two new vines should be blooming soon and they will have red flowers.
