Awesome for drainage and make pots much lighter. I love the product so much that I will use it every time I repot.
Two months ago was the first time i had used leca and i am impressed on how well my trees look and have found it helps with increasing the time between watering, i have even started to use it in my garden. i am about to order my third Bach and i would recommend it to others
I use LECA to add volume and nutrient retention to my bulb and succulent growing mediums, while it also promotes excellent drainage. In addition, crushed LECA makes a neat surface topping for my pots, which discourages moss and algae growth at the same time. Bonsai LECA, especially the 2-4 mm size, is perfect for my purposes. It is an economical way to stretch the more expensive media such as pumice and akadama further, while giving up little in terms of drainage and root development. I would not recommend the round balls used in hydroponics. Get this instead - it is comparatively not much more expensive, but WAY better as a growing medium.
Excellent product mixed with akadama and pumice i would not use any athor nursery products again Thank you Mr Terry Jaco
i wrote a review on this before when i got a 5l bag. i was happy wit the product but had a reservation as to the size of the rock and the fact that you had to sift and wash it. i was horribly mistaken, as when i got the 25l bucket of it it was a dream. and you get a bucket as a bonus. i have found good root production on cuttings aswell. great stuff no need to sift and wash and the rock size is actually perfict not sure if the product was different from the 5l to the 25l but i was amazed
