Japanese Akadama (Small Grain Size)
The best potting soil for Bonsai.
Akadama Bonsai Soil Mix is a high quality mined soil from Japan. It is the most popular materials used for bonsai tree soil mixes. Akadama will maintain its form when dry and will absorb water when its wet. This is ideal because your tree will receive the proper amount of moisture in between watering sessions and prevent soil compaction. Akadama is commonly mixed with lava / pumice rock for even better drainage and added health benefits. Lava rock has sharp jagged edges which will split the tiny micro roots of your tree helping with root health and growth. This is one ingredient that works well with all soil mixes and with every type of bonsai tree. Akadama is used by professional bonsai hobbyist and beginners alike.
Small Grain is approximately 1/8" to 3/16" in size. A 25 cent/quarter coin is used for scale.
Available in the following sizes:
2 quart (repackaged in the USA)
4 quart (repackaged in the USA)
8 quart (repackaged in the USA)
The Japanese bag -14 liter (about 3.7 gallons).

- I like it
Overall Rating Quality ValueI like it very much! It works good on my succulents. The shipping is very fast and I am happy with this purchase. A small problem is part of the akadama turned into powder when I got them. I don’t know if this is normal. It is very soft, can be smashed easily by finger.
- I finally bought it!
Overall Rating Quality ValueI finally bought Akadama! I only did because of the reasonable shipping. I usually use black volcanic rock in my mixes which ultimately lasts longer and is cheaper to ship but "what the heck" I said, let me try it.

- Slow shipping service
Overall Rating Quality ValueI see these reviews that say fast shipping and I wonder why my orders take a week before they ship it? The first time i thought maybe it was a fluke and so I tried again but this was my third order and the slowest of all. Not sure if I will buy again?
