LECA stands for LIGHT WEIGHT EXPANDED CLAY AGGREGATE. These LECA balls are manufactured by fly ash and other natural resources. These balls are environment friendly, inert and hygienic. These balls (or hydrotons) are sterile because they are produced at very high temperatures in kiln. These hydrotons will never be a reason for disease and harmful bacteria into your potting mix. Due to its light weight, these clay balls float on water. Hence, they are more widely used in vertical gardens and hydroponic system. They helps in maintaining suitable ground level temperature. Use of Leca in potting mix, improves roots aeration and thereby healthy growth of plants. We have shown an image of snake plant here for this purpose. Weight of Leca depends upon size. Approximate weight of this medium size of 2 Ltr Leca is 450 Grams. Leca balls will be sent on the basis of weight (450 Grams) in each pack.
