Plants in bottles or glass boxes are not a new concept. They originate from the eighteenth century. In this period, glass bottles and crates were used to bring plants and seeds from one side of the world to the other. There are different types of terrariums, closed, open and half-open. A closed terrarium can, in contrast to the open and half-open terrariums, grow into a self-sufficient mini-ecosystem. The plants adapt and become self-sufficient over time.
