*update! I started some with seeds the other day. https://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!

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.

haha, I love it, and I love the idea. I wonder what the people walking by must think "Oh dear... a ball of hanging grass/moss. hmm"

I just joined Ravelry, let's be friends?

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.
