Thought you folks might like some pics of my growing table from last summer. Just a quick photo dump. I think I took these shots around May 2023. Enjoy!

Thanks! It's a FTS Maroon Monster that I got years ago. I've been trying to grow it out like Maggie Chen's award winning plant but haven't quite gotten to that level yet. :-)

Thanks! It does a good job of rain collection but I still have to supplement in the summer to keep everything topped off.

It's actually an automated watering system as well. It's on a timer that kicks off a water pump in the center bin that pumps water up to about 7"in the table.
Gives all the plants a good drink and then drains back down again. Works really well so far!
