Alright, so because we will eventually be moving I have tried to keep the costs low. Everything that I have done here for free you can do similarly or shell out a small amount of money.

Need:

Trellis form - Can be a pallet or store bought. I found mine in the trash.

Wire - Relatively durable wire that holds its shape once bent. I found mine along the street

"Pots" - Be creative here. I just pick up various bottles that I find in the gutter on the street. You can use anything that will retain soil (or you can tie your plants directly to the trellis in the case of air plants)

Soil - Whatever soil your plants need. I paid $10

Plants - I originally intended to use this for herbs but all of mine died before I got around to hanging them up. I spent about $10 for two nice orchids and the rest I took cuttings and rooted

Secure your trellis

Propagate some plants:

Wire up the plants:

Repeat:

I think my wife is going to make a couple of these, with all my training I have going on this summer, we aren't going to have time for a full garden

I've found that some plants take to it very well while others do not. It's important to figure out the drainage so that you aren't double or triple watering the plants at the bottom.
