So, this has been a focus for me over the last few weeks, thinking through how to set everything up. So, based on what everyone has been sharing, the following ideas have been put together…
Setting up the column(s). I would prefer not to suspend it from the ceiling. I think the metal columns look more structured, which is very appealing. Also, there are a lot of opportunities to grow vining plants, and upon obsessing on how to manage creating this look, the following items have been picked out:
- Welded Wire Fencing, that can be shaped in a wave pattern; meaning that it would curve to the south on one side and then curve to the north on the other side, making semi-circular curves in which to suspend the bottles on one or both sides. The way the fencing is, it would be so easy to use plant tape to train or trail the plant, make a modular system and it would keep the tubing very straight.
- Acrylic Rods, 1/4 inch, 9″ wide to slide through the bottles and suspend them on the fencing.
- 1/4 inch rubber gaskets, on the inner and outer side of the fencing to keep the rods from sliding around.
