Adam LewenParticle question here; Particles to start "float upwards" after some time

Hi there!
Although not fluent with trapcode particular, I touch in every once in a while.
Right now I have build a mock up, a field of sunflowers...
I need advice on trying to make the flower-heads float up slowly after, lets say 10 sec of being static while I dolly back...
I want the heads to start float very slow and independently. one every 1-2 seconds. the whole play will be much longer than this demo.

DEMO -





Any thought or tips will be a great help!

You can keyframe the wind in Y to increase after a certain amount of time.

I suggest motion path, if you want the particles to start each individually. You will have to have them be born at the rate you want them to start floating up. Or, probably a better idea, use physics time factor to slow them down just when the first particle starts to float. Rough example attached (without physics time factor).
