Clay pebbles, also known as hydroton, are a popular growing medium for orchids. These small, lightweight balls are made from clay that has been fired at high temperatures, making them highly porous and ideal for providing proper drainage and aeration to the roots of orchids.

Clay pebbles can be used alone or mixed with other growing mediums such as sphagnum moss or bark. They are also a great alternative to traditional potting soil as they do not break down or compact over time, providing long-lasting support for the plant.

One of the benefits of using clay pebbles for orchids is the increased air flow and drainage provided to the roots. Orchids require well-draining soil to prevent root rot, and the clay pebbles allow water to easily flow through and out of the pot, preventing waterlogging.

Additionally, the clay pebbles can help to regulate the temperature and humidity around the roots of the orchid. The clay material can absorb water, which can then be released into the air, helping to maintain a more stable and healthy environment for the plant.

Overall, clay pebbles are an excellent choice for growing orchids. They provide the proper drainage and aeration that orchids need, while also helping to regulate temperature and humidity. These pebbles are lightweight, easy to use and long-lasting, making them a great option for both beginner and experienced orchid growers.
