How to use the Bonsai Soil Mix

Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Bonsai soil. Add a small layer of Bonsai mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Bonsai soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Bonsai soil. 

Lightly pat the Bonsai mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Bonsai mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Bonsai mix works. 

Bonsai are very delicate plants that need the best quality care available to thrive. The bonsai mix should not get hard when dry and have a good amount of aeration and drainage. The addition of pumice & perlite supplies this.

The lava rock helps with the structure of the roots and weighs them down, stopping your bonsai from getting top-heavy. 

    The original habitat of the Bonsai plants

    While bonsai don’t exactly come from nature, they do have a specific substrate requirement. This Japanese art form keeps the trees small, usually also in mini-containers compared to the large root system the plant develops in the wild. Gritty and quick-draining soil is key for the success of your bonsai. This Bonsai mix has it all!

    How to care for Bonsai  plants

    Bonsai trees are more delicate than your average houseplant. Note that it is tree-specific, and we will only give you some basics to go by.

    Fertilising regularly during the growing season is a must, the root system & soil volume is small, so nutrients go quickly. To combat this, the Bonsai Mix has worm castings added in, which release nutrients slowly into the bonsai mix.

    For the perfect watering schedule, do some research on the type of tree you have. As for light requirements, bright indirect light is best for most, but again, do research on your specific tree.

      Good quality, heavily overpriced

      As the title states, the quality of the soil is really decent. Drainage is good, mixture is as advertised. There is one flaw which is that it is heavily overpriced. I wanted to have the same soil components but in smaller amounts since I do not have that much storage. If I did have the storage to store larger bags I would have bought every component individually and mixed it myself. A quick estimate would result in similar pricing but at least 3 times as much soil.

      Delivery and packaging was quick and not disappointing.
