Its porosity helps prevent waterlogging and promotes healthy root growth, while its lightweight and easy-to-handle nature makes it a popular choice for various orchid growing applications.
When used in orchid cultivation, #8 sized sponge rock can help provide a stable root environment by improving aeration and preventing soil compaction. It can also help maintain a consistent moisture level around the roots, allowing for optimal nutrient uptake and growth.
It is recommended that when working with sponge rock, you wear protective clothing, a respirator and work outside in a well ventilated area.
