I was thinking about throwing compostable rubbish into a jar and growing a plant in it while the jar lead is closed as a terrarium before the composting proceeds—and then leave it as it is. I am not sure how much this idea is achievable but here this brings me a few questions that I cannot easily find on google:
- Is this idea functional?
- Can a plant grow in a composting pile before the composting is finished, with a little soil? Does composting damage the root of the plant growing on top of the compost?
- Can composting happen in a closed jar?
- Will the oxygen used by the compost, and the oxygen created by the plant/moss, balance each other?
