would these towers work with 0.5L water bottles? would they not contain enough soil for plants to grow?

This idea of working with small volumes of soil in bottles came from the observation that trees can grow in slits on rocks, that trees and shrubs can grow in gutters, that lots of flowering plants can grow on humid walls (rooting in and between humid bricks. So, why would some vegetables and herbs not grow in small bottles, e.g. 0,5 liter ones ? They do !
