    Default New Plant Cart

    Okay!!!! Here is the picture of it put together with some of my 'chids on it. Currently only the Catts and a couple of intergenics are on it while I figure out the best placment, lighting, etc. So about 60 plants on it. I finally found the right tool to put it together - my Dad.

    It has 4 40Watt full spectrum fluorecent bulbs per shelf.

    The shelves are wider(deeper) than they appear in the picture, almost 2 feet wide. so about 50" by 23" by 1" per shelf.

    Hey now, that really turned out well! I have to get something like that soon, it's such a great use of space for growing.

    It has drain holes with plugs. So I can leave a little water in to add hunidity (there are grids in the trays), and then when watering remove the plugs and stick a piece of flexible hosing into the hole so the water can drain out the door.

    Question

    Diane,
    Can I ask where you bought your cart and did it come with the light fixtures?
    Thanks.

    Per the rules of the site I can't post a vendor name here. If you want to look around and try posting a few more times, once you reach 5 posts I can send you a private message. It did come with the lights, allthough there is an option to get it without lights.
