  1. This upside-down planting always struck me as cruel. Plants want to grow up. They can feel gravity, and grow against it. Why would I force them into this unnatural position? why not have them in a hanging basked, growing like they want to? I want my plants to be happy, and these don’t look happy.

    • It is cruel! And just when I think they have had enough I’m going to butcher them and cook their flesh over medium heat and eat them slowly as a garnish on my favorite dish!
