"How do I suppose to have a garden at home?"

"How am I supposed to have a garden at home?"

Is there any differences?

  • The idiom is How be X supposed to VP?: How am I supposed to know, How were they supposed to manage it, etc. The supposed to part is pronounced /spost/, never /spozd/. It's always a question, and it's a rhetorical question because the answer is that X is or was not in fact sposta. – John Lawler Nov 21 '14 at 20:40
  • I don't know what "How do I suppose to have a garden at home?" means, if anything. – Kris Nov 22 '14 at 5:53

There is a world of difference; the first "I" is the subject, in the second ,it is equivalent to saying "How do people suppose that I ...", The second is correct.
