There are many of these types of tutorials, but none that I could find that instructed you to keep the bottom of the bottle on and not cut it off completely.

Keeping the bottom on allows you to turn the bottle over without spilling your soil.

    It is working well, though I'm not sure there is any advantage in growing this plant this way. It keeps wanting to orient itself upward. My plants that are in pots and growing up look better. I might get another bottle and replant so that the plant is sitting at a normal orientation.
