2’ x 1’ Trays

by Groomed Hippie » Tue Apr 03, 2018 1:35 am

I’ve been in the market for some 2 foot by 1 foot trays. I bought myself some 6”x6” pots and I really like them cause they fit so well under my lights but I cannot find trays to fit them so I made my own but they’ve started breaking down and leaking. If anyone knows of a brand or anything it would be much appreciated. Anything bigger than 2 foot in length will not fit in my greenhouse.

What about aluminum cooking pans for turkeys or something similar. They are cheap. You can't pick them up but they will hold water. There are plastic storage containers at the dollar stores for cheap, and I use those.

I use these in my greenhouse, until my plants can go onto my table, and my inside grow areas. I highly suggest the heavy duty ones. The normal ones get brittle quick while these hold up to some abuse.

I’ve been looking at plastic containers but haven’t found any the correct size, the aluminum is an idea but I’d like to be able to pick them up

They will hold 10 4" square pots or 8 6" square pots comfortably. The 4" pots will leave a small gap in between rows.

I would advice against those aluminum cooking trays. Aluminum may not rust, but it will corrode and break down. They can work in a pinch though. But I wouldn't long term.

If they can hold 8 6" pots then that's perfect
