Bonsai Professional Growing Medium


What is it?

Bonsai trees grow in very small containers with little growing medium for years, so your choice of medium is important.

This Professional Growing Medium contains Peatfor water retention and Leca(light expanded clay aggregate) for drainage. Fast drainage leads to enhanced root development. Roots are forced to grow in search for water. In so doing a fine network of feeder roots form. This network of fine roots, and not the thick storage roots are critical as they support refined, highly ramified bonsai trees.

How to use

Take care with watering as this mix may dry out quicker than what you are used to in summer. Mulch if necessary and after recently repotting using moss, pine bark or any other similar medium or you can add extra Peatfrom our Bonsai range.

As the mix is free draining, fertilizer is not retained. Use solid fertilizers. BonsaiBoostis a 100% plant organic, slow release fertilizer which works well with the Professional Mix.

Bag Contents

30% Peat Moss
70% Leca

If you want to take your bonsai to the next level then I would encourage you to use a  combination of Akadama and Pumice (Hyuga)

Quality and service

With the repotting season in full swing and feeling the pinch of budget restraints the Professional mix was the best product with the best value for money I know of. With proper drainage and airation at the root system.

Works very well with my Baobab's

Last year I bought Professional Bonsai mix from you. I was looking for something that drains well for my baobab bonsai trees. I did not give you feed back then, because I wanted to see if the trees liked the "drier" mix. They grew very well in the Professional Bonsai mix. I am glad about that, I was worried about the climate here, but the open mix and loose structure of the soil suits them well. And they do not mind 40°C + in the Swellendam summer either!
