I know this is very old post! I was looking around trying to find best Leca and a link came here. After reading through everything, I notice that bwester soaked his new prime Agra in kln. Since it looked like this media absorbed and released more than an inert media, I think the new media dumped kln into the liquid along with strong fertilizer and this was the quick cause of plant death. Maybe I read that kln detail wrong but it’s what I think happened

I doubt that was the issue. More likely just bad timing for repotting.

Check the Semi-Hydro section of my website. A few months ago I tested several currently-available brands plus a few Japanese bonsai “soils”.

All of the LECA samples performed similarly.
