What is a forest in a jar?
It can be defined as a small, living micro-world closed in a glass space, which is a unique decoration.
According to the assumptions, the forest in a jar is a small ecosystem, thanks to which we do not have to take care of it completely. Thanks to the fact that a closed ecosystem is created, we don't have to water our jar :).
Is it difficult to take care of a forest in a jar?
The forest in a jar doesn't require much care from us, because a closed jar has its own inner life. The water has a closed circuit, is absorbed by the roots and released as it evaporates and returns to the ground by condensation.
Where is the best place for our jar?
The jar does not like to be in full sun, it should stand in shade or partial shade.
