Calcium is an important part of cell structure and helps the plant cells work normally.
The benefits or calcium On Pumice
Calcium will strengthen water pipes and food pipe of plants. This enhances the efficiency of water and food delivery to different parts of the plant.
Calcium is an important part of normal hormone production, such as hormones, cytokines, which help strengthen the flower buds. If the plant is deficient in calcium, the plant hormone will also reduce and result in lower flower bloom and slower growth of plants.
Calcium builds up a strong root system that absorbs water better. If calcium deficiency, the root system is weaken. Root cells could easily broke and soil disease will enter the roots easier.
Calcium helps the root system to resist saline soils.
Calcium helps plants to accumulate nitrates within itself. This helps the plant grows better especially in the period where the plants require high nitrate. The root system of the plant will not grow and shorten, if calcium is lacking. When growing new roots, the plant will requires high calcium.
Pumice Stone For Filter Substrate
Pumice stone is a new substrate that can be used as substitute of coral reef. It has spongy appearance but durable. The stone is not as breakable as coral reef and has long life duration. Pumice stone is light-weighted and easy to clean. It can help control water’s PH, either the water has high or low PH, the pumice stone will control water’s PH to be around 7.0.

Pumice For Construction
Pumice is widely used to make lightweight concrete and insulative low-density cinder blocks.
The air filled vesicles in this porous rock serves as a good insulator.
A fine-grained version of pumice called pozzolan is used as an additive in cement and is mixed with lime to form a light-weight, smooth, plaster-like concrete.
This form of concrete was used as far back as Roman times.
Roman engineers utilized it to build the huge dome of the Pantheon with increasing amounts of pumice added to concrete for higher elevations of the structure.
It was also commonly used as a construction material for many aqueducts.
One of the main uses of pumice currently in the United States is manufacturing concrete.
This rock has been used in concrete mixtures for thousands of years and continues to be used in producing concrete, especially in regions close to where this volcanic material is deposited.
New studies prove a broader application of pumice powder in the concrete industry.
Pumice can act as a cementitious material in concrete and researchers have shown that concrete made with up to 50% pumice powder can significantly improve durability yet reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption.
