About This Product

All Expanded Clay is not the same! Hydro Crunch Expanded Clay Pebbles are made with only the highest quality clay, producing a media that is uniform, stable and low in inherent E.C, meaning you get the best outcomes from your plants. Our special kiln-fired Expanded Clay Pebbles are lightweight aggregate that is super-heated and formed into pebbles 8 mm round in size. The ceramic shell and inner pore structure retains moisture and releases it back to your plant's roots as needed. Clay Pebbles will not compact, ensuring excellent aeration for the life of your plant. Hydro Crunch Horticultural Expanded Clay Pebbles are made from 100% natural clay. They are clean, pH stable, and offer great aeration and drainage in hydroponics. Due to their unique structure and ability to cover a large surface area, they offer the ideal environment to foster beneficial bacterial growth around the root zone, leading to naturally healthier plants. The heavier the clay the LESS porous it becomes. Our clay is light and has lots of air inside for better results in the root zone. Hydroton is very dense, so while it does not float, it also does not hold the air. Our Expanded Clay Pebbles is not suitable for flood and drain systems as initially it can float, however if used in media mixes in pots it is by far the better performer.

Highlights

  • Made from 100% natural clay, extremely stable in both pH and EC
  • Pre-washed to aid in stability
  • For use in media mixes in pots
  • Better results in rooting compared to dense/heavier competitor clay pebbles
  • Strong structural integrity means that they are less likely to break and compact
  • Pure mineral without fibers or solvents
  • Offers excellent evaporation protection as a top layer
  • Can be used with all current hydroponic systems
  • Size: 50 Liter Bag, 8mm
  • Note: Not Suitable for flood and drain systems

          Good for Hydroponic Growers
          I used these pellets in my Hydroponics Cups as bedding for the roots. Each season they can be recovered and re-used. They provide excellent water retention and structure for the root bed.

              Seems like good quality pebbles to use in my lettuce & herb hydroponic system! Plants are growing well. Pebbles were easy enough to rinse and soak before using.

              Good: Light weight, clean, uniform round size that is easy on seedling roots, suprisingly less expensive than other clay media. Bad: Highly bouyant. Not suitable on its own for aquaculture flood and drain media beds. (In my limited experience, and with this in one bed exclusively now for 2 months.) It raises and lowers so much in the the flood and drain cycle it buries anything you plant in it unless it's already a large plant. Works very well, however, if mixed 50/50 with a denser clay media like Viagrow medium. (Which ironically doesn't work well on its own either due to rough shapes that tear apart delicate roots.). Together, they work great and the 50/50 mix is what I use in all my beds now. I have 1 bed with only HydroCrunch- Nothing can grow. I have 1 with only Viagrow- limited plant growth with smaller seedlings. I have 1 that is a 50/50 mix.- Plants grow exceptionally well from small seedlings.
