*update! I started some with seeds the other day. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344568.msg4008130#msg4008130 They started sprouting! Pics are on the bottom of this post
I ran across this site last night and instantly decided I needed to try this!
http://www.stringgardens.com/

I made a ball out of wetish clay rich soil. Then I wrapped it in moss and tied string around it, hung it up and sprayed it down with a water bottle. These pics were taken a few hours after its creation, lets hope it works!


















I hope you like it and thanks for looking!   Grin

What a neat idea!  I'll have to try this out.  Your potted plants are also lovely.

It is just some moss, if I can keep it alive and from falling apart I will try something else.

Thanks so much for posting, I love the idea. Smiley

I got some damp, clay rich soil made a ball and wrapped moss around it and tied it up with string. I have some started with seeds in it, I hope those work.
