Shower floor tile spacing

Hello,

I'm getting ready to lay tile on my shower floor and was curious about What I have purchased.

It a 12x12 sheet with random sized rocks attached to it. However upon further examination most of the stones butt right up against each other leaving no room for grout.

I should avoid this correct? Else water will swap between the gaps. I don't really want to place each stone individually.

Thanks!

You should have at least 1/8" gap in your stones. Link us to the tile you have chosen as we cannot see what you see without your help. Grout does not keep all the water from going through. It is a barrier, but not waterproof.

Disregard this question. It seems the tile I purchased is more for wall tile then floor tile so I'll be returning and getting something else.
