Formulated by our bonsai mentor, David Nguy, this mix is perfect for promoting growth and an overall healthy root structure. This Akadama Bonsai Soil Mix is a mixture of Akadama (made in Japan) and Lava Rock. This Akadama bonsai soil Mix provides excellent drainage and aeration for healthy root growth.
The unique characteristic of our Akadama Mix makes it porous allowing for absorption of water while spreading the nutrients to the bonsai trees roots. Akadama retains water without breaking down and hardens when dry.
Bag contains 5 Qt. Fills approximately a 12-14" bonsai pot.
Note from In House Bonsai Artist: "This is quite possibly the best mix you can use for nearly every type of bonsai tree. However, junipers and black pines love aggregate and the mix gives both the great attributes of black lava rocks with the absorption of Akadama."
Used in all our bonsai trees that are displayed at shows.
