Very significant experiment. As space is explored that knowledge will become very useful.

I wonder if that works with that specific plant or if most any plant would survive that ecosystem. I remember back in school when the biology teacher was teaching us different ecosystems he mentioned the bottle laying in the woods. I don’t think any of us ever thought about one with a cap on it. Reminds me of the tv series inside the dome. I wonder if he put specific things in the bottle too.

Looks like a demijohn. A big glass bottle like a carboy used for wine.

Years ago, my parents had a big old champagne bottle - a Balthazar maybe - they kept near the fireplace. No plants in it tho
