How GROW!T Clay Pebbles, Grow Media Works:

Expanded clay media is the first choice for aquaponic gardeners

GROW!T horticultural clay pebbles are made from 100% natural clay. They are clean, pH stable, and offer great aeration and drainage in aquaponics, especially in flood and drain, deep water culture, and drip feed systems. 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.

GROW!T Clay Pebbles can be used for:

  • Aeration of growing media – ideal to mix into coco coir to aid aeration
  • Drainage – will hold water as well as offering great aeration properties and free draining
  • Decoration – looks great as a top dressing for pots and also helps to prevent evaporation
  • Hydroponics/hydroculture – used widely in hydroponic growing, they are ideal for flood and drain, deep water culture and drip feed systems
  • Aquaponics – are also ideal to be used in aquaponic systems

Product Tips:

Rinse the pebbles thoroughly before using.  Clay Pebbles come out of the bag covered in red clay dust that you DO NOT want running through your aquatic systems.  Skipping or skimping on this step may lead to more expensive problems down the road. Take the time to do it thoroughly from the very get-go. You’ll be glad you did.

Soak the pebbles for at least six hours or, even better, up to 24 hours. Yes, the medium will be heavier but your plants won’t have to work hard to get to the water they so desperately crave.

Remove the plants and rinse occasionally. While these clay pellets are known for their neutral pH and lack of nutrients, they can still absorb and hold onto the nutrients you add along the journey. Over time, phytotoxicity can build up and starve the plants. Watch for any whitish residue on the top and rinse the plant and pebbles with a pH-adjusted liquid. You can also leach the system with the liquid.

Add a small amount of nutrients after rinsing your pebbles. You can use one-quarter strength of your base grow nutrient or a nutrient solution of 0.4 electrical conductivity or less.

Don’t reuse the pebbles without rinsing, soaking, and sterilizing with isopropyl alcohol or peroxide. Taking the time to do it right will save headaches later.

Don’t let the pebbles dry out.

Don’t use a regular pot unless you have a dedicated water source. Using regular pots can sometimes lead to algae and draining issues.
