I know how to do it and stuff, I just need to get a ************* huge jar, and some dirt.

We're already saving them as best we can through the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

A actually a very good idea, but some plants require much more, such as a lot of space or a certain rare moth for reproduction.

the rarest plants in the world are rare for a reason, they aren't very hardy. If I had to guess, the plants in his biorb are resistent to disease and funguses that thrive in the damp environment. Pic totally unrelated.

The rarest plants are only rare because of their unique growing conditions, if they just grew normally, they'd be as widespread as grass or whatever. That wouldn't make them rare anymore, now would it.

Imagine what that thing will look like if it survives for a few million years

I actually did this same thing in eighth grade with a water plant (a watercress I think), soil, water, and some guppies inside of a big jar like the one in the content. The plants filtered the water and made oxygen, the guppies ate the roots and fertilized the plants with their poo, as well as cleaning the glass and making CO2 for the plants. It lasted about two years until the guppies finally died, and the plants didn't last long after that, though I'm not sure why. It's actually a pretty cool and easy experiment, if you any of you guys ever want to try it out, and it doesn't require a whole lot of upkeep.

Once every 40 years?

It's actually quite the opposite. Watering a plant once every 40 years, gives you a huge amount of time. HOWEVER, this is not the case. It had been watered only once in 40 years, and the conditions in the jar enabled that water to be reused.
Watering is no longer necessary.
Essentially, we've all got time for "dat"

Am I supposed to be impressed?

Every ******* biology classroom I have ever been in had one of those... I've seen them literally several times a week for 10 years. Aren't they in biology classrooms everywhere?

I mean, seriously, this is not that amazing, it's just a bottle with plants & **** in it...

>step 1: find a giant ******* bottle


>step 2: you dont need this step because you wont find a giant ******* bottle anywhere


>step 3: give up and use a tiny bottle, fail at growing a seedling within 12 minutes

It would be even better if instead of a cork they somehow melted the glass to make a completely closed system
