The General mix is very nice looking soil for most bonsai. Seems hold moisture well but at the same time free draining. Very nice for smaller trees establishing roots!
I've bought plenty of products from bonsaitree.co.za and I must admit that this is the first one that I've found to be a little bit disappointing. In my opinion, the mix contains too many fine, dust-like particles for my liking and I found that I had to sift it quite a lot before I felt happy using it. The cost is quite low though, so all in all I'd say it's still worth buying it as a cheaper bulking agent, especially for the mix I use for some of my more forgiving succulents and for overpotted trees in training.
The soil drains very well and does not leave excessive water which normally would rot your roots. Would buy again.
Excellent- This mix retains more moisture than the profesional mix, so, good if your watering regime is less regular or for trees that require a little more moisture.
This is the best quality soil i have found so far. My trees are growing so well in it. It drains well but also retains some of the water. I would definitely recommend it to others.
