Gribbles Expanded Clay is an organic, red kaolin clay grow media. Hydroponic and aquaponic gardeners prefer this grow media because of its high water absorption rate and flexibility during plant germination and growth cycles. It also doesn’t break down during multiple crop rotations.
Additionally, the decorative red clay and silica pebbles enhance the aesthetic appeal of plant displays and landscaped fields. Instead of relying on inconsistent soil, horticultural experts can use clay pebbles to promote root health and increase aeration, which helps them waste less water and grow plants faster.
Using Red Kaolin Clay in Agricultural, Retail, and Garden Projects
Gribbles Expanded Clay comes from red kaolin clay, a highly efficient expanded clay medium that benefits hydroponic and aquaponic projects. MS Industries sources this clay from the Hartselle Sandstone and Pride Mountain Shale formations in Alabama, and we modify it to achieve a neutral pH balance for easy garden use.
MS Industries maintains internal quality control standards to ensure the absorbent clay and silica composition your plants and fields need. Our Expanded Clay Pebbles weigh 44 pounds per cubic foot, and you can order units in bulk, super sacks, and 40-pound bags to best suit your project’s parameters.
The pebbles themselves come in different sizes according to their intended end use, whether that’s indoor growing or field cultivation. Choose the right size and surface area for fine-tuned water and drainage control.
Properties of Gribbles Expanded Clay
Most growers use clay pebbles for growing in hydroponic, aquaponic, and greenhouse environments. The grow media allows for consistent water intake and better aeration than traditional soils, pebbles, or other media. These properties render it the material of choice for large-scale agricultural projects along with domestic or recreational turf and garden markets.
Red kaolin clay and silica pebbles also provide aeration and good drainage in garden beds and landscaping projects. Farmers across the country use red kaolin pebbles to balance their soil and improve their water conservation practices. They can also mix them into their fertilizers to boost their effectiveness.
Retailers and landscapers use clay pebbles to appeal to both amateur and professional gardeners. The attractive red pebbles can be incorporated into decorative displays, used as athletic field conditioners, or added to fertilizer blends as filler. Absorbent clay can also pick up spills or improve storefront landscaping.
