Thriving Garden in Sealed Bottle Hasn't Been Watered in Over 40 Years

I have to share this. I love that science and mystery so often seem like the same thing.



When David Latimer planted a seed in a glass bottle on Easter Sunday of 1960 out of pure curiosity, he had no idea that it would flourish into a mass of greenery that would thrive untouched for several decades. Now, over half a century later, the sealed bottle garden is still growing as vigorously as ever, filling the bottle entirely with lush plant life, despite the fact that the last time Latimer watered it was in 1972.
