The picture in the add indicate these are round, brown, LECA (Lightweight Expandable Clay Aggregate) balls that are porous and lightweight. This is the complete opposite. The balls are tiny, grey, heavy, and not porous at all. They look like little rocks. I would not consider this to be LECA.
When one reads lightweight expanded one imagines lightweight porous airy balls similar to hydroton. These are heavy solid balls not porous at all.
These clay balls are better than buying gravel or rocks in my opinion. I haven’t been able to find actual clay balls for a good price that had good reviews, so I bought these. I don’t think they provide humidity for me, but maybe it’s because I have a large terrarium. But they absorb the water through the mesh which is good.
The item works well for the aquafer properties that I wanted it for, but I did not know I might need other items, like mesh, to use it as such until it arrived. It said nothing about that in the description of the item. Overall it works pretty well, helps keep my crested gecko terrarium humidity up during cold, dry winter.
