Creating your own DIY forest in a jar does not have to be so difficult! Building your own small ecosystem is a great fun for the whole family and a very practical form of learning for the youngest as care for your little forest
What is the forest in a jar?
This can be described as a small, living microworld enclosed in a glass space, which is a unique decoration.
According to assumptions, the forest in the jar is a small ecosystem, thanks to which we do not have to deal with it completely. Thanks to the fact that a closed ecosystem is created, we do not need to water our jar :).
Is it difficult to care for the forest in the jar?
The forest in the jar does not require great care from us, because the closed jar has its own inner life. The water has a closed circuit, is absorbed by the roots and released during evaporation and returns to the ground through condensation.
Where is the best place for our jar?
The jar does not like to be in full sun, it should stand in the shade or in partial shade.
In the box you will find:
Jar - 32 cm high; width 24cm; opening width 15cm
Claydite - 1l
Specially prepared soil mix for plant compositions in jars (peat soil, compost and organic fertilizer with microorganisms) - 3 liters
