Biosphere in a Bottle - What would happen if you kept a jar/bottle in a dark closet?

A jar or bottle kept in the dark will not show any growth of bacteria because light energy is critical to the development of photosynthetic creatures. That does not mean there are no living microbes in the jar, however. Not all microbes need light to grow.
