Just in case you're asking about how to do the time lapse rather than growing the 'shrooms, there are quite a few ways to set one up.
If you want the highest level of configuration and control you can grab a Raspberry Pi or equivalent, get a camera module or networked camera, and then write or download software for customizing everything. Downside is that it's more work to organize and compile it after you've got the images.
The cheapest/easiest way is to download a time lapse app for your phone or other mobile. I was looking for one not long ago and settled on Framelapse. Going with an app is plug-n-play because once you've set your parameters it takes care of the rest.
There are downsides though like losing access to your phone for the duration of the recording(solved if you have an old phone or tablet you're not using). Not to mention the free versions of time lapse apps have very limited configuration options.
Framelapse seems to be a winner. The other two I tried didn't even compare. (Lapse It and Hyper Timelapse)
Buy the pro version for $3. It unlocks a feature to dim the screen.
Used Framelapse Google Play Link.
Not the Pro version but it does let you capture in 4k and pretty much do all the things you would want. I'll probably get the pro version just to support the developer.
As far as I can tell, there is no such functionality in the stock camera app. But may I suggest Frame Lapse instead. Even the free version is very rich in functionality and far surpasses anything that a stock camera may provide.
I've been happy with Frame Lapse. It let's you set the length of recording and length of the time-lapse. With those, it automatically calculates interval. The pro version has more settings options, but the free should get you buy.
You can use Framelapse or Microsoft Hyperlapse, both are great!
Are you shooting photos form your phone, or loading to your phone from a larger camera?
Here is the app that I use. Much easier to use and very configurable. Framelapse - Google Play Link
Framelapse. Free android app to turn your tablet/phone into a timelapse camera.

I've used FrameLapse for android and it works pretty well. (I'm not OP, though.)
Try it. It's amazing.
