    How do you get the plants to transfer to water only?

    Hi,

    I’d really like to make this. But I’m stuck on tying the knots with the clear wire. I can’t find anything online to help with this, either.

    I used OOK brand invisible picture wire and the instructions to tie the wire were on the back of the package.  The closest thing I could find on the web is this: http://www.carp.com/carp-forum/viewtopic.php?t=22185

    If you look at the link it shows tying fish lures, look at figure #3. When tying the clear wire you wrap it around 5 or 6 times like in the picture but then you put the end back down through the loops, pull tight and it makes an extremely secure knot.

    I hope this helps make it a bit clearer, otherwise go to the hardware store and check the back of a package of invisible picture hanging wire, they tell you how to tie the knot.

    thanks so much! i’ll try this.

    otherwise i might just try some strong yarn?

    Do you put the plants in with roots? Doesn’t appear there are any in jars. Are the herbs just cuttings?
