- Can be used for years, without having to be replaced!
Filtering during production reduces the fine particles in the substrate to a minimum. This prevents a silting up in the root area and sustains a long-lasting capillarity.
The substance zeolite stabilizes the ideal PH balance for healthy plant growth in your LECHUZA planter.
LECHUZA-PON has a continuous capillary action up to the planter's surface. Even undergrowth and small rooted plants get the perfect amount of water this way.
The LECHUZA plant substrate takes care of a balanced nutrient distribution in the root area of your planter. Through the ideal supply the plant builds a consistent, compact root dispersion and becomes a robust plant, that will stay with you for a long time.
LECHUZA-PON acts like a buffer, that absorbs excessive fertilizer and gives it back to the plant when needed. The natural nutrient storage prevents the burning of the roots through overfertilizing.
LECHUZA-PON has an adjusted bulk weight. Your plant is supported firmly in the planter, which is important for bigger plants.
The substrate is a natural odour absorber, eg. for dead roots.
Metallic elements and pollutants (e.g. from the water) are blocked permanently.
The purely mineral plant substrate prevents fungi that attack the roots. PON is therefore suited for people who may have allergies.
PON is not a good home for pests such as the dark-winged fungus gnats, as they only nest in soil.
PON is free-flowing and can be used on its own without any soil to fill planters.
When planting in LECHUZA-PON you don't have to free the root ball completely from soil.
