Developed specifically for hydroponic cultivation, Hydroton is composed of shale that is pelletized and fired. The interface between a plant and its roots is where the media come in. The magic happens below in the world of roots. Hydroton inhabits this world below with the roots. It holds water extremely well and transmits it effectively.
Hydroton clay pebbles (or “rocks”) are made from pH neutral clay. They have an attractive and natural appearance and range in size from 8mm to 16mm.
Their air to moisture ratio makes them ideal for hydroponics.
This medium is the first choice for many commercial Dutch growers specializing in flower and vegetable cultivation.
