Impressive organisation! Everything seems to have it's place to be. I should try and copy your big plants at the back, small at the front scheme. At the moment I have a free for all, the big ones occasionally smother and block the little ones :? .

I really like the simple, clean design.

It's hard to see from your photos, but it looks like the plants sit on wood strips or slats rather than on a solid surface.

Do you find that this helps with air circulation between the plants?

Yes Dave
In Brazil we use the wood strips for air circulation and to permit the water to drain quickly.
