Billions of Plants are Disconnected Around the World

Most civilized societies today have become focused on insulating themselves and other organisms from the “unsanitary” Earth in order to have “clean” controlled living environments.

Humans wear insulated shoes, live in elevated homes, drive in cars, and live completely disconnected from the Earth. 

After the horticultural explosion of the Victorian period, greenhouses and indoor growing became very popular. Eventually new techniques utilizing heating and artificial lighting to grow “controlled” plants indoors were developed. 

Today, billions of plants have become insulated from the Earth with the wide spread use of plastic pots.
