Our smaller packaged 3 quart Akadama is perfect for those looking to use on a smaller pot or with a mix of other materials. Akadama is one of the most popular materials used for soil mixes for bonsai trees. Akadama is a fired clay that retains it's form when dry and absorbs water when wet. This provides the tree with moisture while preventing compaction. Often combined with fine lava rock, Akadama provides excellent drainage and aeration for healthy root growth. It's an ideal ingredient for every soil mix and works with all bonsai trees. The unique characteristic of Akadama makes it porous allowing for absorption of water while spreading the nutrients inherent in its form to the bonsai trees roots. Same brand used by world renowned artist Masahiko Kimura.

Made in Japan. Bag contains 3 Qt (approximately 4lb).

Hard to find September 7, 2012
Reviewer: Jason from MN  
In doing some research suggested by my bonsai club I have found this kind of soil is highly suggested and carries the best abilities in promoting good health. It was a bit hard to find so I am fully happy to have found it and it seems to be working great.  I love best that it is much darker when wet so it is a sort of tell as when to water again.
