And in the past two years, they’ve been able to help others out in their own blogging journey to go after their passions as well. Running Chasing Foxes, traveling, and helping people out with their ability to make money from home (or anywhere) is something they plan on doing for years to come.

Hanging Tomato Plants

Hanging baskets overflowing with colorful blossoms are common summer sight, but how about a hanging pot with tresses of just-ripe tomatoes? Yes, it can be done! Best reserved for gardens that offer little or no inground garden plots or space for patio containers, tomatoes will grow and fruit in hanging containers. Requiring significantly more care than both inground and container-grown counterparts, hanging tomato plants are a labor of love with a sweet, juicy reward for the extra watering and strong support they require. Follow these tips for how to grow hanging tomato plants and you’ll be well on your way to a delicious harvest.
Next, select the plants that will become your upside-down tomatoes. The tomato plants should be sturdy and healthy. Tomato plants that produce smaller sized tomatoes, such as cherry tomatoes or roma tomatoes, will perform better in the upside-down planter, but you can experiment with larger sizes as well. Push the root ball of the tomato plant through the hole in the bottom of the upside-down container. After the root ball is through, fill the upside-down planter with damp potting soil. Do not use dirt from your yard or garden, as this will be too heavy for the roots of the upside-down tomato plant to grow in. Also, make sure that the potting soil is wetted down before you put it in the upside-down planter. If it is not, you may have a hard time getting water all the way through the potting soil to the plant’s roots in the future as very dry potting soil will actually repel water.

Air plant care is easy for all species. They require three things: light, air circulation, and water. We’ll detail them each. First of all, keep in mind that air plants like bright but filtered light so keep out of direct sunlight most of the time (from April to October). In the interval between November and March, they enjoy sitting in the direct sun since it won’t burn them.

Air plants can be displayed in a lot of different ways. The most popular option is to hang them. This, for example, is a very simple project. You only need polymer clay, a rolling pin and something to cut the clay with in order to make this marbled hanger.

You can easily make these copper hangers yourself using pipes, string and wire. Measure and cut the thin copper pipes and then cut the string to size. Insert the string through each pipe and connect these to form a triangle shape using wire. Then attach three longer pieces of pipe for the top section and three smaller ones for the bottom.

These chic geometric air plant holders are made of coffee stirrers and wire. Their design is similar to that of the triangle copper hanger featured above. After you cut the coffee stirrers to the desired length, cut a piece of wire and thread four small pieces onto it to form a square. Then attach four larger pieces to the corners to make a piramid-like structure. Repeat on the other side.

Make your own paper mache bowls for displaying air plants using balloons, flour, newspaper, paint, and string. First make the balloon as large as you want, depending on the desired size of the bowl. Mix some flour and water and cut strips of newspaper. Dip them into the mixture and cover the balloon, leaving out a section. Let it dry overnight. Then add another layer of newspaper strips and let it dry. Pop the balloon and then paint the pod.

They measure around 3.5” in diameter with a 2.5” opening and they’re entirely handmade. A clear coat protects them on both sides. For small or baby air plants you can use copper couplers as a display system. You’ll need a rail and hooks for that and these can be spray painted in any color you want. Drill two holes in each copper coupler and thread wire or twine through them to make a hanging loop. Each coupler is then hanged on a hook.{found on gatheredcheer}.
