Product overview

Lechuza Pon Soil Alternative is the perfect alternative where conventional soil cannot or should not be used.

Pon is 100% suitable for all plants (even orchids and citrus plants) and consists of high quality, mineral stones, that are free from contamination and pollutants.
Lechuza pon has the optimal air/water ratio for plants of 45% water / 55% air. The vulnerability to diseases is therefore reduced.

Even after some time, the structurally stable plant substrate does not condense and it keeps its air permeable structure.
Lechuza pon can be used for years, without having to be replaced! The substance zeolite in pon stabilizes the ideal PH balance for a healthy plant growth in your Lechuza planter. The pon will act like a buffer, that absorbs excessive fertilizer and gives it back to the plant when needed. This natural nutrient storage prevents the burning of the roots through overfertilizing.This purely mineral plant substrate prevents fungus that attack plant roots, therefore pon is suited for people that may have allergies.

Lechuza Pon is made of:
German washed pumice
German, light Lava (supplies your plant with iron permanently)
Fully coated premium quality fertilizer

• Soil alternative - no soil needed
• Supplies your plant with nutrients
• Suitable for all plants
• Anti-fungus, allergy friendly
• Prevents over fertilization
• Anti odour
• Promotes optimal air/water ratio

Size: 18L bag

The hype is real!

I bought a bag of Lechuza Pon to try my Alocasia in - they love the stuff and it makes watering and maintenance so much easier than soil. I’m just trialing my hoya in it and so far they seem really happy too.

Lechuza Pon Review

Loving this product, my picky Alocasia have never looked better, simple and easy to use and by far the cheapest supplier of this product. I am into bag #3 and will continue to purchase from them.

Soil alternative

Bought it as growing substrate for my alocasias. My plants seem to love it. Great company with outstanding customer service

Lechuza pon

I've changed every houseplant into straight pon substitute and they are all booming! They're just planted in a standard plastic pot and sitting in a cover pot full of water. My monstera hasn't had a leaf for months. Within a week of transplanting a new leaf is unfurling.

Lechuza pon

Highly recommend the soil alternative if you're like me and water too much or not enough. All my plants are now in it sitting in water growing very quickly

AMDIWA Marlborough
Best overall price

I noticed a few companies were selling in smaller litres in the end this worked out so much more cost effective. Will be definitely be purchasing more here.

Amalda Waikato

Lechuza Pon Soil Alternative 18L

Love this product. My alocasias seem very happy in this. So much easier than soil

Patsy Christchurch
Great alternative to soil

I use this in pots instead of usual potting mix. Plants grow well, there is less mess and when you water it soaks through quickly. Only down side is you do have to remember to water frequently, it doesnt hold water like potting mix does. I would highly recommend
