Hydroton media is the first choice for aquaponic gardeners

Hydroton is an expanded clay, a lightweight gravel which is manufactured specifically for soilless cultivation. Derived from a renewable and plentiful source (clay), HYDROTON is considered an ecologically sustainable medium. The clay is formed into pellets and fired in rotary kilns at 1200°C. Thereby the clay expands like popcorn and becomes porous.

Compared to gravel HYDROTON offers the aquaponic gardener many advantages. 

  • 1/2 the weight of gravel
  • The ideal round shape is easy on hands
  • Completely inert, pH neutral and does not contain any nutrient (gravel can contain toxic or pH altering materials)
  • Porosity creates excellent air and water exchange
  • 8-16mm range size.

Compared to soil, peat, coir (coconut fiber) or pearlite HYDROTON offers many additional advantages.

  • It can be used and reused for many years
  • Ensures good root aeration.
  • Prevents rotting.
  • Prevents excess acidity.
  • Prevents soil pests.
