Also known as Hydroton, these are essentially expandable clay balls. Canna’s are a really good quality with lovely uniformity, so that’s why we stand by this brand. (The clay balls are approximately between 8-16mm across).
If you’re experimenting with different types of media, these clay balls offer a good starting point because they’re quite inexpensive and really easy to use, and they make an excellent substrate for both Hydroponics and Aquaponics. Some veggies like chillies and capsicums take a real liking to them.
Why we like using these expandable clay balls:
Clean and easy to handle
Excellent moisture retention
High porosity and high air content which aids in better root health and development
Rot and fungus free
Re-usable over and over again (but be sure to give them a good clean with isopropyl alcohol after each use to remove traces of previously used nutrients; rinsed with pH balanced water
Can also be used for drainage in pots with potting soil.
