    Yes, the material we call it volcano stone, it is something between stone and sand (very easy to break apart into small pieces).

    The below is how they look like. The characteristic of these stones is they can keep the moisture, and can let the root can breath. Also, it can last for couple years.

    I usually mix it with other material.
