Super simple, sturdy, self spacing if using more than 1...

You basically cut the bottom two inches and most of one side wall off of a milk crate however you please. I use a hacksaw and side cutters. A bit of a sand on the rough edges and drill a bunch of holes for airflow... Done

Easy, cheap, fast and effective. Great for leech testing, flushing and providing airflow to all sides of the pot. I made it to work within my current tent height restrictions but I think I'll keep them on permanently, even after I upgrade the flower tent.

Great idea sounds like work though lol. I have mine on oven trays the tray sits on 4 soup cans. I have a rubbermaid bin lid below them.
