Nice. However, If you intend to keep it out there for a while or add some hydroponic nutrient you will have to cover the bottle or paint it so that it doesn't grow moss or algae. As a rule, nutrient plus light equals algae. Still I like that you are thinking of using something creatively that you might otherwise throw away.

the bottles are coloured glass would it still have to be painted?

Photosynthesis requires red and blue light. That is why leaves and algae are green. So you have to block out the red and blue light at minimum to stop photosynthesis. When I had my hydroponic plants growing, blocking the light from the nutrient solution was one of my biggest headaches. I was using clear plastic containers which were painted to block out the light. The slightest pin prick or a painted area that wasn't thick enough to block out ALL the sunlight allowed algae to grow. Eventually I switched to tin cans with plastic liners. That's been my experience..
