Hanging your upside down plant correctly makes all the difference in how it will fare throughout the season. Purchase an upside down planting container or make your own; simply use a five-gallon bucket and cut a hole through the bottom. If not hung correctly, the plant may not thrive or the weight of the plant may cause the plant to fall, if not secured.
Select a sunny location to hang the planter.
Select a strong, secure hanging post. Choose a wooden beam or shepherd's hook.
Mount a screw-eye hook into the beam, if a wooden beam is used. Buy a screw-eye large enough to fit the hook of the planter. Pre-drill a hole for the screw-eye. Thread the screw-eye into the hole until secure.
Place the hook of the planter over the shepherd's hook or through the screw-eye. If using a five-gallon bucket, use the handle of the bucket for hanging.
