How does a bottle garden work and why do you hardly have to water it?
What is a bottle garden?
A bottle garden is a miniature garden in a closed glass jar that requires little maintenance. The real plants and composite materials create a small ecosystem modeled on nature. Due to the closed cycle and photosynthesis, the biotope only needs to be watered every 3 to 6 months. Such a small garden is definitely an eye-catcher in the apartment or in the office!
Advantages of the bottle garden:
- As a closed biotope, it hardly needs to be watered.
- The plants no longer dry out because the moisture is retained under the glass bell.
- Pets cannot bare the plants.
- Once the system has been imported, it requires little maintenance and is stable for many months.
How does the bottle garden work?
The moisture remains in the glass and is used again and again. A closed water cycle is created.
Water evaporates from the leaves of the plants.
Moisture condenses on the glass.
The condensed water runs back to the ground, similar to rain in nature.
The roots absorb the water present in the soil.
Plants produce CO2 at night. During the day they carry out photosynthesis with sufficient light and convert the CO2 to O2 (oxygen). A closed gas circuit is also created.
