Ecklonia maxima (giant brown kelp) is sustainably collected off the Southern African coastline. It is then sundried. After drying it is milled to a 3mm particle size.
What can it be used for?
Milled seaweed is useful as a soil additive for:
- Moisture retention
- Slow release of nutrients to the bonsai roots
How to use milled seaweed
Add a small amount of milled seaweed to your bonsai soil mix. The ratio will depend on your desired results but typically a handful for a small bonsai pot and a large scoop for a large bonsai tree.
