    I commented at swissmiss about this too…the plants will not continue to grow upside down like that..another commenter pointed out the correct term for the phenomenon, “gravitropism”, or something like that, that plants know which way is up…it’s not just where the dirt is….bummer, though, they look really cool :)

    This will absolutely work with orchids. They are epiphytes which grow on other trees as parasites, and they hang down from them. If the poster above is right, they may even be one of the only plants which will grow that way!
