Great oaks from little acorns grow – and 196 days of one doing just that has gone viral

The Boxlapse TikTok account creates and shares timelapse videos of plants growing, which is a lot less like watching paint dry than you might think.

In fact, one of their videos – showing 196 days of growth from acorn to (very small) oak tree – has gone viral because it’s so mesmerising.

Anybody else thinking of hunting for acorns?
