Yes Robert, it is a lot easier than putting a system together. The trays are
6.5" wide by 7" long. And I believe 2.5 inches tall so when you cover with
gravel you get 2.75" - 4" depending. And they are perfect for planting and
fertilizing. The trick is to plant several species at angles in the pots to
get a way from the uniform look which is what I have done. Also the foam
matrix is designed to hold the heater cable and not disintegrate over time.
So far so good. Don M.
