Growing lemons in a bottle….

Growing lemons in a bottle….

I've been wanting to do this for a while, and while I understand the basic concept, I'm wondering about sterelizing it, etc. So that it can be used to infuse oils (or maybe some alcohol) I swear I've seen directions on the internet before, but I can't really find any which talk about it as more than just a school experiment. Does anyone have any advice or experience with this? Thanks
