Simulating capacitor charge times

Does CircuitLab somehow ignore capacitor charge times? I made a very simple circuit charging a 1000uF capacitor with a 9v battery through a 3k resistor and it shows it instantly being fulling charged. Using T = 5RC as the amount of time to (approximately) fully charge the capacitor, is should take 15s.

Here is the circuit: https://www.circuitlab.com/circuit/6f7mjpfpwy9f/capicator-charge-time/
