Expanded Clay Pellets (Hydroton)


Hydroton grow rocks, or expanded clay pellets, also referred to as leca clay, clay balls, are one of the most helpful and versatile growing media to any traditional and hydroponic grower.

They’ve gained popularity over the last ten years for their porous shape. With these pores throughout each ball, the pellets make it easy to support a steady distribution of nutrients, oxygen, and water around the roots of various plants.

What is Hydroton / Expanded Clay Pellets?

Expanded clay pellets (Hydroton) are made by heating the clay to over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The process is done in a rotary kiln. As the balls heat up, they fill with bubbles and form into small marble-sized units.

While the clay can be used on its own for growing plants, it can also be mixed with soil and other growing media. Hydroton is used widely in hydroponics and aquaponics.

Benefits of Hydroton Over Other Sources

There are many reasons that you may gravitate towards the use of extended clay pellets for horticulture growing.

Water drainage

The biggest appeal seems to be the way that it helps to drain excess water, though they also keep enough nourishment for constant delivery of it to the roots.


While expanded clay pellets last for a long time, it won’t actually nourish the plant. They have no nutritional value and are primarily meant to use as vessels for the other food provided to your plant. For this reason, they help to keep insects and bacteria away from the plant during growth.

pH neutral

This will bring no effect on the current soil used in the garden. You can combine it with any plant solutions and foundation you need for your garden, without worrying its impact. These pellets are an inexpensive method of making nourishment go a long way.

Easy for harvest and transplantation

Because hydroton is a form of pellets, it does not stick. You will not face much nuisance when taking the plants/seedlings completely from the grow pots.
