Rainforest in a bottle

Rainforest in a bottle

We made a rainforest in a jar. First we collected pop bottles. Next we went to collect some moss from near the playground. Then we carefully put some gravel in the bottom to help with drainage. After that we added pistachio shells to stop the soil from sinking into the gravel. Then we added some soil. We planted a grass plant and covered the soil with moss. The moss will help to stop the water evaporating. Finally we watered the plant and put the lid back on. Our rainforests will be kept out of direct sunlight. We are looking forward to watching our plants thrive.
