Vegetal reduction and self-release

What is the absolute minimum a plant needs to survive?

Is the plant able to escape out of this unnatural environment?

Starting with this questions I began to experiment in several different directions. First idea was to completely outsource the water and nutrient resources. I experimented with different water dispensers but in the end I accidentally found an old pharmacy glas which was perfect for my purposes. The idea is that during the growth of the plant the center of gravity shifts upward which leads to an more unstable state of the glas standing in the base. This leads to an unavoidable point of self-release out of this unnatural environment. Therefore the glas tilts out of the base and gets smashed.DSC00312DSC00308
