The purely mineral plant substrate LECHUZA-PON is the heart of the original LECHUZA irrigation system and the ideal plant substrate for your house plants. With its mineral components, it offers excellent drainage properties and thus ensures optimal root aeration. This means that waterlogging in the planter has no chance! The special composition provides stable pH value and acts as a reservoir for water and nutrients, which are released back to the plants as needed and individually. To ensure that your houseplants appear lush green and stimulate growth, LECHUZA-PON is enriched with a long-term fertilizer This reliably supplies your plants with all the nutrients they need for 6 to 8 months. LECHUZA-PON consists of high-quality zeolite, pumice and lava and remains stable in volume thanks to its special composition. Compared to soil, PON does not compact or clump. Due to the purely mineral base, the substrate does not offer any room for fungi or pests such as fungus gnats. This makes it ideal for allergy sufferers. The substrate is peat-free for nature's sake, making it the best choice for your houseplants.

Tips: After about six months it is time to fertilize the plants again. With slow-release and liquid fertilizers PERFECT LEAF, plants are supplied with sufficient nutrients and shine in their new greens.

Ingredients: pumice, lava, zeolite, slow-release fertilizer

Planting instructions

Step 1:

Add the LECHUZA-PON plant substrate (included with the pots) as a drainage layer on the separating base in the pot. This is important so the water can be transported from the reservoir to the plant.
Then pour a thin layer of the desired substrate into the container. Just enough to give your plant the right height in the container.

Step 2:

Place the plant in your planter. The roots do not need to be completely removed from the soil.

Step 3:

Fill the container completely with the substrate of your choice, e.g. using the PON shovel.

Step 4:

For the first 12 weeks, water your plant as usual from above, directly onto the substrate. Only water as much as the plant can absorb. Make sure that there is as little water as possible in the reservoir.
After this watering phase, you can water your plant via the water shaft. For pots without a LECHUZA watering system, the plant continues to be watered from above. You can find more information here: https://www.lechuza.co.uk/how-to-plant-lechuza/sp-planting.html
