A Sealed Garden That Was Last Watered 46 Years Ago

One keen gardener was curious in 1960 and decided to plant a seed in a bottle which he promptly sealed up. David Latimer never thought he would be on to one of the first self-sustaining ecosystems, which has become an amazing case study for biologists around the world.

When you break it down, this plant was actually planted over half a century ago, yet continues to thrive and live without any issues. The last time the plant was watered was in 1972, but the sealed garden is as robust and lively as ever.
