I like geolite but they all work well.

geolite:
One of several brand names/varieties of clay aggregate medium (also known as LECA for light expanded clay aggregate). It is a lightweight, porous substrate with excellent aeration. Because it does not really wick water effectively, Geolite and other LECA mediums are favorites in ebb-and-flow and drip hydroponic systems.


perlite:
1. Sand or volcanic glass which has been expanded by heat; perlite holds water and nutrients on its many irregular surfaces.

2. Mineral soil amendment


I hope we all know what lava rocks are.
