Step 1: Get a container Find a large plastic container for your upside down plant. Ready-made planters are sold at gardening stores, but you can make your own out of almost any kind of large plastic cylinder. Tip Reduce, reuse, and recycle by using a 2-liter soda bottle, milk jug, plastic bucket, hanging plant basket, or even a heavy duty trash bag for your planter. Step 2: Cut a hole Use a drill, hacksaw, or sharp knife to cut a half-inch hole in the bottom of your container. Tip A soda bottle or milk jug already has a hole, but you need to saw off the bottom of it to create an opening at the other end. Step 3: Make holes for hanging line Cut small holes just under the lip of the large open end where you can attach your hanging line. If your container is a bucket, it already comes with a convenient hanging handle. Step 4: Attach hanging line Thread hanging line made of a strong material such as twine, bendable steel, or leather through the container. Step 5: Attach a hook Find a beam or line in a sunny location where you can grow your plant and attach a sturdy metal hook on the underside of it. Now you've done the setup and are ready to plant. Step 6: Insert plant Lower your plant into the bottle upside down and gently pull the green stem and leaves through the hole. Tip Choose a plant variety that yields small vegetables at intervals, since larger varieties and plants that ripen all at once can put too much strain on the stem. Tomato, cucumber, and pepper plants are popular choices. Step 7: Add soil Spread out the roots in the upper part of the container so they have room to grow. Add soil to the container until it covers the root system. Tip Mix some compost into the soil to help the plant grow. You can also place strips of newspaper around the root ball to keep it upright and prevent soil from washing out through the hole. Step 8: Make topper plant Plant a small herb or flowering plant on top of the soil above the vegetable roots. Doing so not only helps retain moisture in the soil, but also maximizes space and adds a pleasing visual effect. Tip If you don't add a topper plant, cover the container with cheesecloth, mulch, or another breathable lid to prevent rapid evaporation. Step 9: Hang and water Hang your upside down plant from its hook and water it daily through the top opening until it literally bears the fruit of your efforts. Did You Know? Asparagus is the United States' most popular garden perennial.

I know this is really late but this is awesome! I love on a second floor apartment and have been trying to grow more of my own food. This will definitely allow me to maximize space as I already have hanging plants.

You forgot the camo tape! add more visual effects by making the container less visible.

i don't think you should grow plants in a bleach container

why cant it just be simple instructions without the annoying background fast paced music!

DO NOT USE A BLEACH BOTTLE! It is not best and can make plant have problems later, as bleach can still leach out of plastic. Instead use a plastic bottle that was first used for food or drinks, to be safe

I know they made the comment about asparagus at the end, but they did not say if it will work in this. Does anybody know?
Dayne Jule Sheets (9 месяцев назад)
I think, but am not sure, that asparagus like to grow upwards toward the sun, but am not really sure.... need to look it up...
Jason Leer (1 год назад)
Jennifer W I don't think Asparagus would work as well as tomatoes but why not try it 😀
Jennifer W (2 года назад)
I agree with Alec Rosenthal. in the beginning it would be fun to have a plant just to make it look prettier. but plan to move it. they will both be competing for nutrients otherwise.

Why would you do that!?

So you don't need a trellis

Organix Girl (3 года назад)
I thought the bottles that are safe for food are 1,2 and 5 those are the recycling numbers safe to use for edible plants?

  Wow Growing things upside down . Hanging baskets are notorious for drying out, Its like hanging cloths out  on a washing line in the sun and the wind to dry. You will be forever watering your overhead garden. Unless there's a good reason why you didn't just stand the planters on the ground, standing on the ground is much better.  I have been using  small pots, just standing them on my patio  and got some great results. Want to check them out? Just visit my channel and see some patio leeks, carrots, beans and potatoes being planted, grown and harvested.

Snails and slugs and many other bugs don't climb up to get them when they are hanging. The plants stay off the ground easily without stakes or trellises. The air blowing through them keeps them from getting moldy.

Extending your ideas on how to grow vegetables upside down is quite resourceful. The information being provided is also an eco-friendly way of customizing your space upon growing this kind of system. I'm sure this will help! Good job!

I’m over the shitty spammy web links on this video. If you desire to make a profit you need to find proof of sales and profits. The sole location I’ve seen this is the Zutore Cash System website (Google it.) Do I possess a Ferrari? Hell no… However I have quit my job to test out this internet marketing business since I used the advice on the Zutore internet page. Does this bs cause irritation to everyone else? No? Just me personally then!

Did you know that you can remove labels from containers so they don't look so ugly? Did you know you can also paint them to blend in with the environment? Do a camouflage job to match your favorite assault rifle! The food safety bill passed a few years ago makes it a crime to grow a garden and soon DHS will enforce it. They don't want you growing non-GMO food which they are using to kill us. In the latest farm bill is the Monsanto Protection Act, exempting GMO producers from all liability.

Richard Einstein IS this true? Oh. Lord that's scary! I'm so worried for this Country.

Don't put another plant on top. Double the plant means double the watering. Also if the plants grow larger there is only half the space for roots.

That is a easy way of making money in your own time... but Split Profit Setup is better. I earn well over $6k every few days using it and anyone can too. Therefore check it out. Search Google for Split Profit Setup and discover how.

Wow... Very cool.. A great way to recycle and grow plants at the same time.. I will have to try that sometime... Thanks: ).. I started a garden, first year... My favorite is vertically. Want to check out my channel sometime? Gardeningfirstyear@youtube.com

This method really does not work well at all. The plant grows toward the light no matter how you plant it and when the plant forms the veggies they break the stems. Remember those $19.99 topsyturvie things on TV? They are $1.50 now at walmart because of this problem
Robin Rockefeller (5 месяцев назад)
lastdollarfilms but the topsy turvy tomato planters work great with peppers instead of tomatoes. Even when they start to grow upwards . Peppers are lighter than tomatoes.

Not so much the roots tangling as the bottle getting to crowded and the plants dying from lack of O2 to the roots

Add a hanging bucket underneath to catch vegetables
