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 Peat for 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.
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 Peat from our Bonsai range.
As the mix is free draining, fertilizer is not retained. Use solid fertilizers. BonsaiBoost is a 100% plant organic, slow release fertilizer which works well with the Professional Mix.
