This is a superior soil for your bonsai. Japanese masters use akadama for their highest quality bonsai ? both to promote root growth and provide a medium for optimal water and nutrient retention. Akadama is time tested over centuries in Japan. It is mined from ancient volvanic “soils?, then spread to dry and sifted to separate the grain sizes. In addition to bonsai, akadama has universal uses due to its ability to hold water and nutrients without being water logged. The characteristics of this “soil? includes it?s porosity, stability and it?s ability to store water and mineral nutrients and release these to plant roots. Akadama facilitates fine hair root growth. It is ideal for pot growth because of its properties of moisture retention, drainage and air space. Peat, compost and humus can increase fertility but rapidly break down in container culture because of frequent watering. These organic materials retain water and increase the risk of root rot. Akadama is a great general use “soil? or as an additive to other mixes. Alll plants do well in akadama, including azaleas. I use akadama straight for struggling plants and have great results. I have seen incredible differences in root growth on plants grown in akadama, mainly for its ability to promote fine hair roots. It simplifies repotting chores since roots are fibrous rather and hard and thick. This makes it easier on hands and tools also. Akadama is what the Japanese use and the best soil to use with any bonsai.

This is a beautiful blue and white hand painted oval bonsai pot. Since they are hand painted and hand made, no two will be exactly alike. The dimensions of this pot are 10X5X2″. It has a large drainage hole in the bottom. This pot makes an excellent pot for display and for enhancing any bonsai for long term use, or as a saikei (landscape) for indoor use with tropicals. Creating a landscape in a pot is great for indoor use with tropicals, rock and small accent plants. Also great for cactus and succulents. Let your imagination go and create something of beauty that will enhance any room in your home The bonsai pots presented here were hand crafted, then finished in a wood fired kiln, done in the ancient methods of millennia ago. In researching the ancient art of bonsai of Japan I discovered that in the Edo period from 1603 to 1868 a number of bonsai grown in the royal gardens of that time were in colorful glazed pots. The most popular being blue and white glazed with hand painted designs. Other popular colors were greens, blues, yellows and browns. Since everything was done by hand, there will be variations in the sizes, shape and designs of the pots and none will have the factory stamped out look. The quality is very high and you will enjoy owning something unique and different from the ordinary. Maiban stands behind its products and will cheerfully refund your purchase (less the shipping costs) if you are not totally satisfied
