Pure Hard Akadama Japanese Clay Ball Soil - Small (3 to 4mm) 20 lbs / 13 LHouse of Bonsai Imported
Approximate Grain Size: 3 - 4 mm
Akadama is a mineral rich granular "clay ball" soil that's highly prized for its plant nutrition and good water retention & drainage in bonsai. It's a bit more expensive than other soils, but this medium truly does do wonders. We recommend that you don't use a 100% or a super high percentage of akadama soil due to its water-holding properties. When dry, it has a light golden to toasted bread brown color that turns reddish brown when wet. Please use a rocky soil (such as lava rock or decomposed granite) in combination with this for optimal usage and to prevent rot rotting from water-logging.
This soil is 100% Pure Hard Akadama that we import from Japan. It has been fired for longer than the Regular Akadama to hold its shape better It will be repackaged to fit into square USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Box. It will weigh approximately 20 lbs.
Price: Product $41.00 + USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Box $21.95 = $62.95 Total

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.
- We do not wish to ship imported bonsai soils in their original bag because it is VERY EXPENSIVE to ship them in their original manufacturer’s bag as seen in the product picture. It is more cost-effective for us to pack and ship them into USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes!
- For all imported bonsai soils (such as Akadama, Kiryuzuna, Hyuga, Kanuma, etc) we cut open one of the manufacturer’s bags and fill the shipping box. All bonsai soils are new and unused!
If you wish, we can fold up and pack the original manufacturer’s bag into the shipping box with your bonsai soil so you can see it for yourself it is the same bag as seen in the product picture. Please leave a note/comment on your order that you want the manufacturer’s bag to be included!
(!) 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.
