great product May 15, 2013
Reviewer: Sammy  
This in my opinion is a great buy, it is very good for roots.  I would say it allows them to be more stable and has great ability to hold water when need be but also drain as needed. Best thing about it is you can use it on its own and there is no need to mix in anything.

great mixing component April 24, 2013
Reviewer: Jessie from Salt Lake City, UT  
I chose this instead of a larger size b/c my tree is still small but it seems to work great.  I have used lava before for repotting in not only my bonsai but othe plants and it works great for water retention.  It as well helps to let me know when the plant is getting dry because the lava has a different color slightly when wet vs dry.
