Project # 23: Jungle in a Bottle
How It Works
"Although no air or water can get in or out, any plants in the bottle will thrive. They are part of an ecosystem, in which all things in one area- including animals, plants, and even soil - work together for survival."
"In the natural world, during daytime, water constantly passes through plants in a process called transpiration. The water moves up from the roots and out through tiny holes in the leaves (as visible vapor). This turns into water droplets that form clouds. In your jungle, the vapor becomes droplets on the inside of the bottle. The water drops onto the soil, like rain,and the Cole begins again."
