Conifer Bonsai Soil Mix – Professional Sifted and Ready To Use Tree Potting Blend In Easy Zip Bag – Kiryu, Akadama, Black Lava, Pumice & Charcoal

SuperFly Bonsai’s Coniferous Bonsai Soil Mix

This mix is a variant of the most commonly used and accepted mix by bonsai professionals around the world. Here in the United States it is known as “Boons Mix” after Boon Manakitivipart. We modified this to meet the needs of conifer bonsai trees such as pine, juniper and other conifers.

Is It Dirt?

No. Bonsai trees do not like “dirt” and will in most cases die if left in dirt over long periods of time. This is substrate.

What Is In It?

The primary components are Kiryu, Akadama, Pumice and Black Lava. We also added a bit of Horticultural Charcoal. These components have been found over time to provide the best drainage, water retention, nutrient retention and air circulation possible to promote healthy bonsai.

- 1/4 Japanese Kiryu – is a very hard substrate that absorbed some water.  Kiryu does not break down and assists in drainage.

- 1/4 Japanese Hard Akadama – is a clay like component that is excellent at retaining water and it breaks down allowing roots to grown in it’s place.

- 1/4 Japanese Hyuga Pumice – is a volcanic byproduct that is excellent at retaining water and nutrients.

- 1/4 USA Black Lava Rock – is also a volcanic byproduct that is excellent at retaining moisture. Black lave also adds structure to the soil.

- Horticultural Charcoal -This was added to harbor beneficial bacteria and add humic acid in the soil.

How Do I Use It?

This is “real” bonsai soil. Be sure your bonsai pot has holes in the bottom covered by bonsai mesh.

Each micro climate may require different amounts of water. On hot days you may need to water two times while around freezing you may need to water every few weeks. Push your finger 1″ into the soil and feel for moisture. If it is dry, it is time to water.
