Love Lechuza Son

I first came across the Lechuza Pon after purchasing one of their large containers. I am going to use it as my potting mix for a philodendron in a self watering container. My City Plants was the only company that had it in stock and offered fast shipping! Thank you!

Thank you, Gail, for your review. Pon is great and plants LOVE it!
May your Philodendron plant grow happy and healthy!
