Make sure thread should be hard and can carry heavy items so that when you will hang it on the wall it will not break down. Next, when you gather the ends together the planter should hang straight down and not veer of at one angle or another. If it will be then when you will put water in the bottle then all water will go on one side and will be difficult to spread in all side of the bottle.
