MINI LECA PEBBLES

These mini pebbles are a ceramic, purely mineral substrate made out of expanded clay that has been heated to high temperatures inside of a rotary kiln. These pebbles are porous and provide homes for beneficial microbes as well as great aeration to the root zone, which can speed up plant growth.  Ideal for drip-feed, deep water culture, and flood and drain systems.  Also great for tropical houseplants and can be used as a mulch for indoor or outdoor plants. 

BENEFITS 

  • High total porosity provides excellent root ventilation and oxygenation to plants
  • Extremely stable in both pH and EC
  • Excellent draining capacity  
  • Strong, stable, and durable
  • Great for soil aeration and drainage

APPLICATION  

  • Soil Ingredient: Mix with the other components of a soilless media (coco coir, peat, compost, etc.) to improve its physical and chemical properties at a rate of 20% to 40% 

  • Mulching: 5-10cm layer placed on top of the soil substrate prevents weed growth, reduces moisture loss due to evaporation
  • Hydroponics: Can be used alone or in combination as the ideal inert substrate for hydroponic and aquaponic crops
  • Drainage/Aeration:  Place a layer of the material 3-10cm thick, below the growing medium in a container 

ANALYSIS: 

  •    Made from 100% natural clay
