Wow, what a wonderful article! Planting plants in a jar or terrarium is a standard science experiment, but the authors have taken it way beyond being common. They have put all sort of twists on it like taking oxygen and carbon dioxide readings. They share charts and detailed instructions in the article. This is a great read for any teacher wanting to do extensive work with plants.
