Made from natural volcanic rock, this crushed aggregate/soil medium is very porous to improve drainage and aeration of the roots. The color is black with a few grayish-black rocks speckled throughout. It's great to use for top soil dressing, bottom layer for drainage and mixed with akadama and our all purpose organic bonsai soil mix. It can also be used for cactus and succulent plants too. We've repackaged the soil to fit inside a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium Box for better priced shipping.

This small grain is about 1/8 - 3/8 inch in size. It will weigh approximately 14 lbs.

Special Notes about Bonsai Soil Packaging for Shipping:

  • All bonsai soils (including imported ones) will be repackaged to better fit into the shipping box. They will be bagged on the inside of the box to keep it clean upon arrival.

(!) Bonsai Soil Is Not Eligible for Combined Shipping Discount: (!)
Due to the heavy weight nature of our bonsai soil, they will be shipped out in their own individual shipping boxes via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate. They are not eligible for combined shipping with other items since they take up almost the entire volume of the inside of the shipping box. If we attempt to put them together into bigger boxes, there is a VERY HIGH RISK of the shipping box bursting open and spilling its contents during transit to your destination. Plus it may be too difficult to move a heavy box that is over 35 lbs. We're sorry for any inconvenience that this shipping safety policy may cause.

House of Bonsai sources good soil and soil aggregates from The United States of America and imports from various Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea, etc. We verify that they are pre-screened and pre-sifted by the manufacturers before we bring them into our bonsai nursery. Please note that most pre-bagged soils will be cut open from their original manufacturer's bag packaging to be re-fitted into a cardboard box for shipping purposes. They are all considered "natural products" as they originate from being dug up and/or mined from the Earth. During the transit process, there may be some dust and finer soil particles that form as the box is being moved from distribution centers, trailers and delivery trucks. We make sure that all soil and soil aggregates that are shipped out to our customers are "clean and unused", so you will get the pure product specified in its product descriptions.
