Bottle garden

Design*sponge has a cool and beautifully shot tutorial on how to make your own bottle garden. Cut up some bottles and create a wicking system and you have some pretty objects to put in the windowsill. Nice.

Well, there's still no Instructable about it. Also, it looks a little wobbly. Maybe something to address that?
It is wobbly, really need to cut two bottles, otherwise the top becomes too short in relation to the length needed to account for the neck.  I might post it eventually, there are some nontrivial differences in implementation between mine and theirs.
You could also use some glass beads in the bottom half to give the neck of the bottle something to nestle into.
Hey, you still post it - remember the Zeroth Law.
