growing in a glas jar upon sterile nutrification media ( 210 mm, diameter
Information for all of you, who have got one ore more living plant in
of all, you are hosting a living plant, which is growing upon
a artificial nutrification media.
media is composed by minerals, vitamins, sugar and a gelling
substance purchased as Gelrite.The
recepy of media is optimized to allow ideal circumstances for
plants to grow in the glasjar for many month and sometimes few
jars, nutrification media are sterile and free from fungus or
glas jar is opend under normal conditions, Microorganismen from
the environment can enter nutrification media and propagate
in a way, that will harm the growing plants. Please
don´t open the tops of the glas jar!
cultures are closed in a way, which allows exchange of air through
an antimicrobiotical filter.
worry about growth conditions and exchange of air, the cultures
are supported with everything they need. But take care of physical
conditions arround the objects. If you expose it to strong sunligth,
conditions inside the gas jars will become worse, the same ist
true, if you expose it near heating . Beware of darkness,
strong sun/light, Infiltration and puff of air, coldness and
plant in the jar from time to time and find optimal conditions
inside your rooms. Ask for at least two objects to compare. Plants
need moderate light sources, it depends on the types of plants
growing. From my experience plants grow better, if you pay
attention to living plants from time to time!
IN RESIDENCE are prozessing artworks and change over month.
the nutrification media is consumed while growing at the end plants
you are unlucky, because your plant culture is reaching its end:
can do at least three things:
Contact "pflanzfabrik" and find out, if we
can transfer plant to fresh media in a novel jar. Don`t try
to do it by yourself, if you are not provided by a clean bench
Try to replant the content of jar into soil or hydroculture.
Clean roots under running cold water from nutrification media
and transfer to humid soil. Protect soil culture by plastic
bag etc. for few days to allow plant to adapt to lower air humidity.
Keep object and prozess as is and put mumified plant to your collection
of saved things. If objekt is dryed out comnpletely, you can open
the cup and smell the odour of hay.
