I need a substrate to fill my net pots and both products look like they could work. Question for you guys is which do you like better and why.

Rockwool in 2" net pot = <3
Not only do you avoid buying additonal 'fillers' to hold up your plant, but you can directly install it into your aero garden and let the misters mist! no need to ever water it yourself to start the plant as the rockwool can absorb and retain sufficient moisture for the roots to pop out of the net pot, after which the roots will dangle and see the beginnings of your aero grow!

I am thinking about using the grow rocks on top of my soil, they say they keep the gnats away and hold lots of water and air

I'm using Growstones and they seem to be working really well. Better than the Hydroton's we use at work. You need to strategically place them in the cups to make sure the water doesn't squirt out if you're using a powerful Aeroponic system. Make sure to rinse them first and that's it. Good luck!
I can post a pic if you're intersted in seeing them in place. They do hold the water very well.

I grow Hoyas, an epiphytic liane, and I have just discovered growstones. I love them! I find rooting cuttings they work as well as Hydroton...and I am using it in the bottom of the larger pots to give air pockets for the roots. I like the moisture retention capabilities...

I really like grow stones so far. They hold water very well, they also seem to have great capillary action. I didnt have to pay any extra for them, I got them as a sample...dunno if I'd pay the extra to go the greener route though.
