Love it. Rope + soil + clean jars + succulents = hanging garden. So easy, so upcycle-y, so lovely. This would work super well with herbs, too, or small flowers like violets!

You can check out the full project at Revolução no Quintal, although the site is in Portuguese.

  1. Yessssss. Must install wooden beam in my apartment to make this possible.

  2. Be careful with growing things in jars… there is no drainage and it is easy to get root-rot, just a heads up!

    • I've been growing houseplants in jars for years – just don't overwater them and you'll be good.

    • I've been trying to find a container small enough to fit mini succulents in to display in a tiny weird window. Baby food jars could be perfect.

  3. My cactus Spike has always harbored a secret desire for flight…..

  4. This is wonderful! Must resist… urge to try… right now…
