the plant shouldnt have to large roots as they may die

make a hole at the base of the bottle to release the extra water

sprout gram etc will work too

As longs as the stuff does not grow too big everything will go, good drainage provided of course.
Parsley, Oregano and basil do quite good in a 1.25L bottle, lettuce or strawberries not so much.
You should use "soil" that has good water holding and darinage qualities, I prefer moss or coco fibres for it - both need a good soak and wash first to adjust the PH level.
Either add some slow release fertilizer to the mix or water with a weak fertilizer solution once something starts grwoing and all should be fine.
