This is post is the reason i took a hiatus from this grow journal.
Positivity and thinking bring results. Reactions simple do not.
Each pot weights 8lbs.
Each plank holds 7-8 pots. This means 56-64lbs.
The Top House of Cards = 250lbs +
The Bottom Row House of Cars = 200lbs+
House of Cards total weight = 450-500lbs.
It just was not worth my time to explain to people who TELL and do not ASK.
I can fall over the boards and it does not move a single inch. I have fallen over without issue. We climb into the center every 1-2 days without issue. The "Card Structure" is stronk.
It also helps to add a few 3" hex wood screws for stability when we take plants off.
But no one offered that.
Casters, and shelves, etc..etc.. That is great and all. It really is. But so many times people come to the forums and do this routine and they don't get constructive help, they get negative dooms day help.

Continuing from where I left off.
