Washed river gravel or pebbles is what a friend uses. He even mixes those
with spaghnum moss to grow his phals. No pH problems there.

It is. No other brands are easily available. Do you think mixing with
marble chips would be an option? They don't retain water, but they are
heavy and irregularily shaped.
I guess I could also use a lump hammer to break the spheres up a bit.
