An ecosystem in a sealed bottle.

Man, the plants in that jar must have fossilized since the first time I saw them.


notoneforusernames

I don't get this. How can the plant thrive with no outside co2?


SeaworthinessOk2884

They put bugs for decomposition but they also give off co2


i-need-the-chaaavs

They also have a cycle called respiration, where they breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. For some reason it’s not commonly known (not a jab)


titulum

Wait what? Could you give some more information?


i-need-the-chaaavs

I don’t know a whole ton about it, aside from that it is the opposite of photosynthesis, and it is when they take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Search up ‘plant respiration’ though and I’m sure you’ll find some information


drkidkill

Decomposition.

Imagine living in a glass bottle, consuming your own bodily waste for sixty years.

Ever heard of the water cycle? You're drinking dinosaur pee already.


JDTexas84

I prefer my dinosaur piss fresh from the tap!

SHOW BIZ! That's how they do it in Hollywood!

1 plant 1 bottle. The next hot fetish video


ManWithoutUsername

like live in the earth planet except you consume everyone's waste

Don’t threaten me with a good time.


DrMux

I love how proud he looks of his biodome-bottle.


bliston78

I fuckin would be, that's awesome imo.


lalauna

Yeah, he looks quite happy and fulfilled.


PanTopper

Was this bottle specifically made for this purpose?


BruceInc

Highly doubt it. Looks like a demijohn


Fullwoody

It is pretty big it may be a fulljohn!


BruceInc

😂 you made me Google that one! Well played


Fullwoody

Haha that's fantastic!


Theaznkid360

Not necessarily, you can use any enclosed glass. Here’s a video on how to diy one. https://youtu.be/y0u9k-MSo8U

This **repost** continually annoys me because: Stated: "It continues to thrive because the sealed bottle is *like* a miniature ecosystem..." Retort: It is **NOT** "*like*" whatever for your entertainment -- ***IT IS a closed ecosystem***. It continues to thrive because it is a BALANCED ecosystem. I might be wrong, I'm probably wrong, or am I?!


DoinReverseArmadillo

The bottle certainly has grown over the years….


BrianWagner80

Glass is sand that's been hit by lightning


lalauna

Melted sand bits are called fulgurites. I learned this from Reddit.


BrianWagner80

Thank you. That will be my word of the day for tomorrow. I will use fulgurites 3 times tomorrow


lalauna

That's a smart way to add words.


BrianWagner80

Thank goodness he didn't put a plug on the top Edit: Is that a plug? Forget what I said


Resident1942

The title said SEALED so yeah...


BrianWagner80

You don't have to be a smarty butt about it


ShayneBot

In an isolated system, entropy can only increase.


BigBlueBurd

It's not an isolated system. Energy in the form of heat and light can enter through the transparent jar.

The original ecopod


bigbratzbaby

he looks so proud 🥲


JuggernautNo44

Where does it get its co2 from


griffin2322

Decomposition


fishmalion

His face definitely says “I fuck this.” “Often.”


abilliontwo

What if every time this got posted it was a new picture of the same guy recreating the same original picture, and because it gets posted so often we don’t notice how he’s gradually getting older in each picture?


stenchtrenchforall

How does the Cork not pop out when all that oxygen builds. After 60 years surely the pressure is substantial.

Bad bot


GarbageFuckingPOS

Holy shit, that plants more self sufficient than I ever will be.


Vardeegs1

What if he contacted the US forest service and they were able to change it the sealed bottles orbit or maybe change the street that it stays on from a 2 Direction St. to a One Direction St.? I wonder if the one-way street would work? Perhaps just rotating would save global warming for everybody. Can we pass this by Louis the genius Gomerto?


Zebracakeftw

Ah yes, the ecosystenm.


HavingNotAttained

Does it work for people outside of England?


wwwdotWeirdperson

What kind of plant is it?

Mr_FlexDaddy

First off the very definition “ecosystem” makes no sense and does not work in this scenario. Second sealing it will just suffocate it from oxygen resulting in killing the plant.


1northfield

That isn’t how it works

If this is new to you, there's at least 2 high quality youtube channels that do this type of stuff.
