Jumbo glass propagation tubes, 1.5x8" (38x200mm ), you can't buy bigger ones off the shelf. Chad Ludeman of Staylokal (Lokal Hotel/Postgreen Homes) shared this photo from their new property in Egg Harbor City, NJ where they incorporated a DIY test tube wall propagation station. Here is what he had to say:

"We rehabbed a dilapidated and abandoned cabin in the woods into an upscale AriBnB. This was an old piece of lumber from a section we demolished that had been in a fire. We drilled holes to accept your test tubes and mounted it to the wall with french cleats. A pretty easy project all said and done that really adds to the living area. We have a lot of plants in all our rental homes and now try to put propagation stations in them all! These are the best test tubes we've found and a great size. We will keep inventing new designs for propagation stations utilizing them and may even sell some on the side..."

I purchased 38x200mm test tubes to replace rain gauge tube that broke & I could not locate any other option local/online that would fit the - apparently - special size for the rain gauge. While I was disappointed the test tubes did not have incremental markings (for rain measurement), since the test tube fit the rain gauge perfectly, I was able to transfer markings from prior/broken tube to the new test tube. Subsequently, able to use the new test tube for my rain gauge.
