    Rayleigh-Bénard experiments using an ethanol-water mixture in an annular cell, have shown that the patterns which occur at the onset of traveling wave convection can evolve in a complex fashion over hundreds of hours. We describe a 500 hour transition from a group of three convecting roll pairs to thirty-nine pairs which filled the cell. © 1990.
