German quality expanded clay is especially suitable for hydroponics and aquaponics. It is an ideal medium for growing succulents. The porous pebbles absorb moisture and allow for fantastic drainage of water from the roots of the plant. It will also absorb any nutrient solution. Their superior drainage function keeps air circulating so roots get plenty of oxygen. They’re pH neutral and rather inhospitable to bugs.
