This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.

if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face

As we enter the colder season of the year, chances are many of us will get a cold or the flu. Luckily there are many inexpensive herbs that can help prevent or soothe the symptoms. They raise immunity and soothe any discomfort caused by one of the highly contagious influenza viruses out there.

Here are 7 powerful and inexpensive natural flu remedies to start building up your defenses to avoid repeated illness during these colder months.

1.    Thyme

Thyme works as an excellent expectorant to clear out your sinuses and lungs when a common cold or the flu hits. So make sure to keep thyme essential oil or dried thyme at hand in case you fall ill. To loosen mucus in your chest or sinuses, steep 2 teaspoons thyme in a cup of boiling water for 10 minutes. Drink as needed during the day until symptoms disappear. Or make a steam bath with dried thyme or thyme essential oil to help loosen mucus.

2.    Licorice Root

Licorice root has strong antiviral properties that can fight off the flu or common cold. You could opt for licorice tea or supplements, but make sure to buy the real, organic thing. Most commercially available licorice products don’t even contain licorice but anise seed, which has a similar taste. Be careful if you take medicine, licorice can interfere with some of them.

3.    Garlic

Garlic is one of the best immune booster out there. People who often include garlic in their diet are better in warding off viruses that cause the flu or common cold. If you can bear the taste chew on one clove of garlic once a day to keep the flu and cold away. If this is too much for you, mince the garlic and mix it with honey or add it in abundance to your daily dishes.
