Depends on what you are growing and how big :) I just noticed in the pic you had some that were unusually larger so I assumed you might be growing something interesting, which you were :)

Thanks Chris appreciate the feedback :) I have 4" on the other DWC sheets, would that be sufficient ??

That's too bad but I am sure Itll all work out. Good luck!

Yeh we had to mortar the supports down for level, the concrete pieces were uneven on the edges :( it was close to impossible to find a batch of equally even ones.

Oh Yes! good eye, this is the only one with 8" separation, it is sort of experimental to try out a local incense bush.

Hi Chris, Thanks and yes we designed allowing for carts or trays to go through as well. All the tanks are 2m long and 1.5m wide and 350mm deep (approx. 78"x59"x14"). We are planning basil, butter bibbs and rainbow chards for the troughs. For the growbeds we have a mix of brandywines and beefsteaks, red and green peppers, rosa bianca eggplants, some fairfax derivative (sparkle i think) and alpine alexandria strawberries, one sunrise papaya

I was more referring to the spacing of the cups as it seems pretty roomy for what you are growing. Also was there a reason you mortared down the supports where you did with removes your ability to easily expand to a third grow area in the future?

Good luck with the project!

Wow that looks really nice. Tons of room to work around the setup. What are you growing? What is the spacing on your DWC setup? It looks pretty wide.
