In 1960, David Latimer decided to grow a sealed glass bottle terrarium. He never imagined that it would grow into an incredible research study and be dubbed “the world’s oldest terrarium.”
David established the terrarium by placing a quarter pint of compost and water inside the ten-gallon bottle (custom hand-blown glass makers usually make these).
He then added spiderworts seeds with the help of a wire. After that, he sealed the bottle and put it in a corner filled with sunlight.
Then, let nature do its job through photosynthesis. Photosynthesis releases oxygen and moisture into the air via plants.
The water will then build up and drip onto the plants. The leaves will also fall and rot, releasing carbon dioxide, which the plants require for their food.
