What is drainage and hydroponics?

Drainage is the possibility of draining off the irrigation water to avoid stagnant moisture.
With hydroponics, the plant grows exclusively in expanded clay and water – without any soil.

How does expanded clay work?

Due to its porous properties, expanded clay is ideal for drainage, but also for hydroponics and soil improvement in outdoor and indoor areas. Expanded clay can be mixed with soil, planted over soil or even without soil.

Which grain sizes are available?

brockytony active & decoton is available in 4 – 8 mm and 8 – 16 mm

Which plants are particularly suitable?

brockytonys are basically suitable for all ornamental plants, especially indoor plants cope well with hydroponics.

Does the culture medium have to be renewed at some point?

Expanded clay is structurally stable. This means that expanded clay generally cannot be decomposed or dissolved.
It therefore does not need to be renewed, except for optical reasons.

Will brockytonys withstand frost?

Expanded clay is in itself insensitive to snow and ice. However, a decomposition effect can occur over several years.
This is caused by water storage and the subsequent frost.
