Lechuza Pon is the new trendy growing medium being increasingly used by plant influencers and collectors. Pon is the high-quality, mineral plant substrate as an alternative to soil. It is perfect for even distribution of nutrients and optimal air-water ratio.

Lechuza Pon is made of high-quality mineral stones, which stops plant pests such as fungus gnats as well as allowing a balanced nutrient distribution. Lechuza Pon has the optimal air / water ratio for plants of 45% water and 55% air.

Another benefit of Pon is - it is reusable - this substrate can be used for years without having to be replaced!

Lechuza Pon contains:
-Zeolite
-German washed pumice
-German light Lava (supplies your plant with iron permanently)
-Fully coated premium quality fertilizer.

The coating is purely organic and degrades residue-free. The fertilizer supplies your plant with nutrients for up to 6 months.

Suitable for all plants - foliage and flowering plants, orchids, citrus plants, herbs, tomatoes, fruit trees and even cacti and succulents!

We have a few plants in pon in our clear nursery pots (it is not necessary to use self-watering pots with pon). For these we water them normally like we would do with soil - flush the pon thoroughly with water, letting excess freely drain out through drainage holes. You want the Pon to be evenly moist throughout after watering (Pon slightly changes colour as it dries out). 

Tip: Once you’ve transitioned your plants into pon, keep an eye on them for any changes. It might take some time to adjust for certain plants.

All our products come safely secured in our eco-friendly packaging (even our tape is compostable!).
