I love the soda bottle planters.... So attractive. The ones that look like glasses (using the soda bottle tops!) what is the flat surface on the bottom ?

Eee-awwwee, eee-awwwee, eee-awwwee.
*Flashing blue lights.*

Look like cannabis plants to me.

Seriously, though, nice handiwork. Very jealous. My craft skills are crap and Mr Potato Head and Furry Friends tested my patience.

(My dad used to soak a length of string in kero or metho, tie it around a nice blue or green glass bottle, then ignite. Then dip the bottle in cold water. C-r-a-c-k. And with that a perfect edge. The bottle could then be used for holding pots.)

You are confused. It's potting plants, not planting 'pot".

I'm growing Sneezy, but that might be a result of ingesting something else again.

Looking forward to seeing if DC can shake the browns and get some okay fruits from this lot. A challenge, for sure.
