LAVA-LITE is a volcanic stone that has been formed naturally during a volcanic eruption and the aftermath. Unlike Perlite and Vermiculite, it doesn't need to be heat treated further for expansion. All LAVA-LITE products are 100% natural, inert and pH neutral.
Absolutely. The porous nature of LAVA-LITE allows water to flow through it so that it can reach underneath. However, LAVA-LITE also has the ability to retain moisture so that plants can access water when they need to.
Of course. LAVA-LITE can be used on all indoor/outdoor plants. We have tailored our products to make it easier for people to use them for a particular type of horticultural need. LAVA-LITE Hydro-Gro+ works well as a hydroponic grow media for certain vegetables.

Yes. LAVA-LITE can be used alongside any feeding regime because of its inert and pH neutral qualities, giving you complete control over your regime. Please be aware that the LAVA-LITE may discolour if the feed has a colour to it.
