We recommend you follow these steps and this way you will learn to grow your own food in plastic bottles.

Process: Mark the cut areas of the bottle with a marker (a rectangle next to the bottle and small holes through which the rope will pass). Cut the bottle and make the holes with the nails. Cut the rope that you are going to use in two long strips. Burn the edges and apply them. Now pass the rope through the holes in the bottle. Add a piece of tape to the bottom of the bottle. Have two knots; One on the bottom and one on the top. Think of which plant you would like to plant on your first bottle, so that you leave enough height and place the other bottle higher or lower depending on the plant. Pass the rope to the second bottle. You can attach vertically the bottles you want.Before adding a bottle on top of another, it is important to make sure you cultivate the bottle below.
