LECA (Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate) functions as an effective drainage medium within enclosures. Its porous and lightweight nature allows for optimal water drainage, preventing excess moisture accumulation that could lead to root rot or other plant issues. By creating air pockets in the substrate, LECA promotes root aeration and prevents compaction, facilitating healthy root growth. The even distribution of water ensures that plants receive the necessary hydration while minimizing the risk of waterlogged conditions. LECA's inert properties also prevent it from altering the pH or nutrient composition of the substrate, providing a stable environment for plants. Its durability and reusability make it a sustainable choice for long-term enclosure maintenance. Thus, incorporating LECA as a drainage layer proves pivotal in maintaining suitable moisture levels and promoting overall plant well-being.
