Natural Horticulture, Aquascaping Lava Rocks
Lava rock is a great medium for drainage and water retention.
Lava rock has neutral Ph. It can be used many times at hydroponic culture after washing.
Lava Rock Usage in Agriculture Industry:
- Inland reclamation
- In-plant cultivation in less soil or soilless environments
- In agricultural – green areas with limited water feeding.
- Hydroponic & Aquaponic Growing Systems
There is no weed problem. Thermal temperature control around the root equally keeps it from growing, protects it from heat and cold. Keeps the oxygen rate high around the root. Provides healthy root formation. This provides the plant to grow more vigorously. It is useful for the water economy, prevents evaporation of water, creates low energy costs. Provides higher quality water to the roots. It provides faster growth of microorganisms that make the nitrogen in the soil water-soluble so that the plant can take it. Long-lasting structure (arrangement of soil grains) Resistant to insects, fungi, and plant diseases. It does not contain any toxic substances to plants, It is homogeneous, easy watering Low salt content Having a certain cation change It is very rich in chemical minerals. Can be used over and over again
Aquarium lava rocks are volcanic natural substrates for aquascaping aquariums.
Highly porous volcanic rock
The highly porous volcanic rock has various tasks in an aquascaping aquarium: First, it provides a stable base for further constructions of stone and/or wood (roots), which would slip further down through the soil. On the other hand, many beneficial bacteria settle in the porous structure, contributing to a positive water environment. Furthermore, the porous rock structure provides good penetration of nutrients and provides many minerals, allowing plants to root and grow very well.
Rock size: 2-10mm approx
