Shower tray issue

Our shower tray was never put in very well and causes mold to sit on the edges which caused the silicon to go mouldy. So my husband decided to get plastic trimming so that it would stop the water sitting on the tray edges.

What I'm wondering is once they are glued in what do we put in the large gap where the two parts of plastic join. It is quite a large gap. Can I just put silicon in there or do I need to do something else before putting silicon over the joint?

You need to stop using silicone in showers, it's not resistant to mold. Try using one of the new shower (mold resistant) caulks, DAP is the brand I have used for years.
