TIME LAPSE PHOTOS
Welcome to our "Time Lapse Photo Section." The reason for this page is to further show examples of the growth cycles of Vetiver Grass. Notice the growth rate but also the different colors during different seasons. As you can see all of the photos are taken with a date below it and an explanation when needed. Also please note that a lot of the photos are taken from the same location over the years showing the whole story. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by either email at firstname.lastname@example.org , our "Contact page" or telephone 34 692 288 657. We look forward to hearing from you.

May 26, 2015 New Vetiver Planted. In the next few photos notice the telephone pole to get an understanding of the actual scale and locations of the photos.
Sept. 4, 2016 Only 1 year later after planting. Notice the location of the telephone pole in the photos. These photos also include cutting the Vetiver back to 30 CM at least 2 times during this period. We use the cuttings for hay in the chicken pens to ward off insects. We also use it as mulch everywhere for not only moisture retention but also insect repellents. We are totally organic and use no pesticides. Here is a photo of Vetiver working as a wind block while also providing erosion control and retaining water while adding additional nutrients to the soil. The interesting new find is that with Vetiver planted close to the Avocado trees we use far less water than normal. For further studies please contact us directly. We have 2 year old trees already producing fruit.
April 21, 2015 New Plantings.
August 20, 2016 Color changes again.
