    I'm just thinking of the mess that could possibly be made after watering. Can't say they're not creative, though.

    Pretty aesthetically pleasing, but watering would be a bit of a process.

    It looks like it could have its unique pros and cons. If I had a functional greenhouse, I'd be willing to give it a try. It appears that many more large/mature plants could be grown in less space than conventional methods. I can envision several different watering methods that would likely suffice in that kind of setup. One concern, if used with Drosera, or Utricularia, is that there would need to be methods developed that would facilitate isolating the weedier species/varieties, so they wouldn't infiltrate the plantings of other species, unless their presence (as companion plants), were acceptable, or even desirable - which it sometimes can be.

    If the line you're using to hang/suspend the plants is natural/biodegradable, I would encourage changing them out with something more durable, like stainless steel wire, or the suspension could suddenly fail, and allow your plants to drop unpredictably and become damaged.

    From the copyright on the photos it would appear these are from Megan Read - wife of Ed Read. And from the sequence in the middle that there is some narrative to go along with these photos. I wish the link to the associated blog was supplied.

    First thought was "Cool!" Thought that came immediately after that was ... "But they'd be a ***** to water."
