Product Details

Decorative pot topper for indoor and outdoor use. Lightweight Granules absorb water and slowly release it. Protects from over-watering and creates a beneficial micro-climate. Ideal for crocking and improving humidity.

How to use:

  1. For houseplant care, place the plant pot on a layer of Hydroleca which will absorb water and release it slowly to prevent root damage caused by the pot standing in water
  2. For crocking, put a handful of Hydroleca in the bottom of pots and containers as crocks before filling with compost. This will provide good water retention and aeration, improving plant root growth and overall plant health.
  3. For greenhouse benches, fill a tray with a 2cm layer of Hydroleca and place plant pots on top. Keep the Hydroleca moist so that it gradually releases moisture to the plants placed on its surface and improves greenhouse humidity.
  4. For balconies and roof gardens, add Hydroleca to potting compost in a ratio of one part Hydroleca to three parts compost for lighter weight containers to grow a wide range of plants, including small trees and shrubs. Hydroleca can also be used as the drainage layer in a green roof planting of drought-tolerant plants such as sedums.
