Upside Down Garden in 2-Liter Bottles – Container Fruits & Vegetables

Upside Down Garden in 2-Liter Bottles – Container Fruits & Vegetables

I’m growing fruits and vegetables upside down in 2-liter bottles and containers! Most were started from seed, and some were even started with seeds from store-bought fruits and veggies! πŸ˜€ Included are tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, lentils, potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, radishes, strawberries, jalapeno peppers, bell peppers, apples, watermelon, pumpkins, corn and more to come!

To see the process of how I put the plants in bottles, check out my video “How To Make Upside-Down 2-Liter Bottle Plants – Step By Step!” here:

Join me in experimenting with growing! I’m learning something new every day!

    This is so awesome!! Reusing 2 liter bottles for this is such a neat idea πŸ˜„ Can’t wait to see how everything grows over time!

    You planted popcorn seeds 😳 cool –
    And your corn looked ok. The top has this frilly thing at top. Apologize don’t know it’s name. I think that was what you referred to as bad? I love how organized you are with your bottles hanging. We learn by doing. I give thanks when I can plant a seed & it produce. Throw out the weeds.

    Did you start the seeds in the bottles?

    they will grow better if you paint the bottles to keep
    sunlight from roots

    New Subscriber here. Sept 2021. I wanna see process of you transplanting

  8. Vincent Dolente on April 21, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    you might be crushing the roots with too much soil in the begining.

  9. tom thumb on April 21, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    it’s better to put drain holes on the sides

  10. Douglas Crespo on April 21, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    This is awesome. You can use anything. I used an old boot for squash πŸ˜‚. Awesome video. Keep em coming xx

    Light exposure to roots leads to root rot

  12. James Carneal on April 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    You will get better results if you paint the bottles, this prevents light pruning of the root system also if you cut the bottles correctly you can slide the cut off bottom back on the bottle and grow them upright for a different look or for better root propagation before flipping upside down, just a few tips from a fellow plant lover, hope this helps

    Great video. Two questions: when growing in plastic bottles, aren’t the roots harmed by sunlight, they are supposed to be covered from it? Should one drill small holes in the neck of the upside bottle, in order for the soil to be able to dry after watering (the same way ordinary pots have holes underneath)?

    I loved this video! I didn’t realize the pumpkins only opened their flowers in the morning! That’s cool πŸ™‚ Everything is looking good so far! I’m excited to see how everything turns out and I can’t wait for your next video!

    I started all my seed indoors, grow lights, some aquaponics. I used little squares of fiberglass screen with a cut to collar my seedling in the bottle neck. Filled w/soil, in one, I used screen to cover the base. I have cherry tomatoes blooming all over it. I have a bell pepper plant in another. Both thriving hanging from a deck in sun.
