I am currently using this for a hydroponic system. It it made of small clay balls and drains perfectly. I think it would be fine.

How much does this really weight?

Asked by HomeDepotCustomer August 15, 2015
1
Answer

50 l ViaStone Hydroponic Gardening Medium Grow Rock is not a Expanded Shale product.. ViaStone is a "Kiln-Fired" clay product resembling small pebbles of various sizes. As far as the bag weight goes, I have 1/3 bag left over from my work and it weighs 20lb. That tell's you a full bag probably weighs over 50lb. I do not know what your application will be, but mine was to provide proper water drainage for my potted pepper plants and ViaStone is the best I've ever used. My mixture is 1/3 to 1/2 ViaStone and 2/3 to 1/2 potting soil. My plants thrive in it. Hope this helps.

I recently built a small aquaponics set up and needed grow media to get it going. This wasn't the cheapest I found but the free shipping made up the difference. I'm currently growing a mesclun blend and sowed directly in the clay pebbles. So far it's working great - nothing to dislike about it. I would definitely recommend.

If you're looking for a grow media for a flood and drain hydroponics/aquaponics system keep looking. 99.9% of these chinese pellets float. I bought three 50L bags and there were only about a dozen pellets that sank. I tried power washing them, soaking them for a week, vinegar/peroxide baths you name it. Make sure you keep your receipts as you'll be returning because of frustration.

Grow rock provides the best drainage for growing chili peppers. My 4x7ft container pepper garden already has over a bushel of growing peppers. Home Depot has the best gardening supplies in town.

This stuff was what it should be & for a reasonable price. I used 200 Lbs which filled one Aquaponics bed. I have two others to do and will use this again. Compared to other product prices this was the best I could find for the amount ordered & it was delivered quickly by UPS & no shipping charge. It does need to be rinsed before using but that was easy after developing a decent method.

Best price and as described. This is the first time I've used this product and it appears to be better than using rock wool or coco fiber.
