Bottle garden still thriving after 40 years without fresh air or water


Would you like to have some plants but don't have a green thumb? Do as David Latimer did; he planted this garden 53 years ago and has not watered it since 1972. The sealed bottle garden absorbs solar energy from daylight, water from the moisture it creates, carbon dioxide and nutrients from the composted leaves that it drops and produces oxygen in the cycle.
More at  Capitalbay Information Portal. The article also gives instructions on how to create your own bottle garden.

Thanks Bruce!
