Are there any plans available for a plant stand, maybe of PCV pipe?? i think the problem would most likely be the trays. Anybody have experience in this field???

I've built things with PVC before, and it's pretty flimsy. I wouldn't recommend a plant stand made out of it, once you factor in the weight of the water. If you do use it... reinforce, reinforce, reinforce!

RE: Plant stand plans

I use this one every year for seedlings. Easy as pie to make, assemble, tear back down and store until needed again by simple labeling. (I did make some adjustments by making the side pipes longer for taller plants and raising the lights as they grew)

Here is a link that might be useful: PVC Plant Stand
