How does it work?
LECHUZA-PON has the optimal air/water ratio for plants of 45% water / 55% air.
The multiple filtering in 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 wicking-action.
The substance zeolite stabilizes the ideal PH balance for a healthy plant growth in your LECHUZA planter. Macro and micronutrients remain permanently.
LECHUZA-PON has a continuous capillarity- 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.
