Exclusive | Versatile Clay Pebbles Hold Moisture and Improve Soil Aeration

  • Clay balls create a moist and aerated growing environment for roots
  • They absorb and retain water, and then release it back to plants
  • Reduce watering chores and provide the consistent supply of water that plants love

Aqua Pebbles are made from clay that's been fired at high temperatures, creating a porous material that holds water and then releases it slowly as plants need it. Commonly used in hydroponics and terrariums and as a potting medium for orchids, the clay balls are also ideal in container plantings. Place a layer of Aqua Pebbles at the bottom of a planter, then fill the rest with soil mix. The pebbles absorb and retain water, while also creating pockets of air space. Roots grow down into the pebble layer, where they have access to both the water and the oxygen they need. Our exclusive blend includes pebbles in a variety of sizes to create the optimum amount of air space. They may also be used as decorative surface mulch. 5-quart bag.

  • High-temperature fired, expanded clay
  • 5 dry quarts
  • Pebble sizes range from approx. 3/8" to 1" in diameter
  • Reusable
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    Comments about Aqua Pebbles:

    I bought 20 bags to use as a grow medium in my aquaponics garden. Last year I used pea gravel but Aqua Pebbles is a far superior product.
    In reference to a previous post; Aqua Pebbles are not meant to be sponges that soak up water. They retain moisture. This can be tested by putting some in a flat dish and cover with water. Next add double the amount on the top. In a short while the pebbles on top will also be wet but your water level barely changes.

        Comments about Aqua Pebbles:

        Absorbs very little water. I weighed a quart of these before and after soaking for hours in water and was shocked at how little was retained. Fine for breaking up / aerating the soil and lightening up a large pot, but you'll have to water more fequently.

          These are great for aerating pots and planters, or using as 'gravel' around the outer base of a pot. There is a plentiful amount in the box for many plants and they are reusable.

              These are fantastic at the bottom of a terrarium. I can see the water level and adjust accordingly. They both hold water and allow for drainage -- perfect.

                I used the Aqua Pebbles for the bottom of my large pot that is growing a bright red Trumpet Plant. These were recommended for the best growth and they were light and small that provides easy use. They give extra water and air to the roots for the best growth. GREAT....

                    I always put foam peanuts in my large planters to save on dirt. They do last forever, but I really don't like peanuts. I saw these and ordered two packages and I am very pleased with the way they are used and does save on potting soil in the large planters. They a little pricey and don't really go very far, but they are better than Styrofoam.

                      Use these pebbles to deter cats from digging in house plants. Placed a layer of porch screen between soil and pebbles so they would not sink into the soil.
