Hydrogranule Clay Pebbles 8-16mm

Hydrogranules are used in hydroculture planting. These clever little granules are manufactured from baked and expanded clay pellets and provide hydroculture plants with optimum conditions to thrive. Our hydrogranules are certified for horticultural use and made from purified and homogenised baked clay. Hydrogranules have many advantages over soil:

Moisture Levels: Hydrogranules create optimum moisture levels around the roots of the plant. The plant will pull water from the hydrogranules according to its needs so there is no risk of over or under watering.

Root Health: The open structure of our pH neutral hydrogranules allows air to circulate around the roots keeping them healthy. Hydrogranules do not compact over time so there is no need to top up the planter and there is no risk of acidification which can occur when soil compacts and suffocates the roots, resulting in plant failure.

Pest Control: Hydrogranules are an inert medium that is less susceptible to pests, fungi and bacteria which means healthier plants with less risk of disease.

Plant Feeding: Hydrogranules are the carrier for water and nutrients. Feeding is optimised by adding a small amount of hydroculture specific liquid feed to the water when topping up the reservoir.
