Akadama Shohin Bonsai Soil - Hard, Very Small Grain - 1 Quart
Akadama bonsai soil is mined from volcanic material in Japan, where it has long been a favorite of local bonsai growers. Though it's commonly used with conifers it works for other types of trees too. Akadama does not provide nutrients so it's important to fertilize when you use it.
Some people use Akadama straight while others have it as part of a mix. One of our favorites is Professional Mix, which contains Akadama, lava and pumice. We suggest hard fired Akadama for all but the driest climates.
We call this smallest grain shohin size. You can use it for small trees, but some growers also use it for larger, old specimen bonsai too.
1 quart bag very small grain (1-2.5 mm) hard fired Akadama soil.
