Yesterday we made a pop bottle ecosystem. It was pretty simple to make once you have all the supplies on hand. We found our inspiration here on Pinterest:
We made the following changes:
1. The pet store didn't sell duck weed so I told them to sell me the hardiest most weed-like plant they have. They did. No idea what it is called, so please don't ask. It was cheap though.
2. I didn't include any fish because I was afraid they would die. We got two snails instead.
3. We had to cut slits on the middle layer that joins the two bottles. Not a bid deal but it helped to slide it.
We used old sage from outside to feed the crickets until the rye grass grows. Hope they like sage!
Now we sit back and wait for nature to run its course.
