Hydroponic grow mediums are just fancy words for "soil-less material that supports the plant weight and holds it upright." In other words, it's what keeps your plants from falling over.
It's generally porous so it can hold moisture and oxygen (which your roots need to grow). But it's important to remember that Hydroponic growing media are inert, which means they don't provide nutrients. The nutrients that plants need come from the nutrient solution, which is what you water and moisten the growing media with. So choosing the right growth medium is crucial and essential.
You need to choose one that suits both the plant's and your system's needs. Water retention, aeration, and pH balance are all aspects that vary depending on the medium and must be considered when making the final choice.
Some of the most widely used growing media are coco, clay pebbles, Rockwool, perlites and vermiculites and pot mixes.
