Picking Up S.T.E.A.M.
There's science to gardening. Your clear container, called a terrarium, is like an aquarium for plants. It’s a mini-world in there! The plants inside need less water because the container helps trap moisture. Some of the water in the terrarium is reused through a three-step water cycle — (1) water evaporates, (2) water vapor cools to make droplets when it touches the container, (3) water droplets drip back down to the plant.
