Benefits

Retains Moisture

Increases Aeration

  • Clay Pebbles are very lightweight and porous which allows them to hold in air and increase aeration for the root systems of your plants.

Provides Reliable Drainage

  • Drainage can become an issue if soil becomes too compact. To prevent bad drainage, Clay Pebbles can be used as they collect excess water and store it for the plant to use later. Good drainage prevents roots for becoming damaged because of excess water. Clay pebbles are usually used as a base layer or even mixed into the growing medium.

Long Life Cycle

  • Clay pebbles can be used multiple times making them a great choice in environments with multiple harvests. There is no predicted expiry date on clay pebbles, their lifespan is dependent on their usage.
