However, when soils are compacted, an imbalance occurs. Use as a blend with your soil mix or by itself. With less pore space, soils become too dense for the movement of air, water and nutrients, and the favorable environment for the beneficial microbial activity necessary in a healthy growing medium, is lost. A good bonsai soil profile is approximately 25% water, 25% air and 50% solid particulate matter. This unique bonsai soil is produced by expanding and vitrifying selected shale in a rotary kiln at temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F. Press the Buy Now button for more information. There is no need for it to be re-applied year after year. Its unique properties help provide free passage of air and water to root systems while significantly reducing soil compaction. It is a natural non-toxic, highly absorptive ceramic granule with a generally neutral PH. It is dimensionally stable and will not degrade like other amending products. Our professional bonsai soil absorbs excess water during rain or watering, then slowly releases this excess water as the soil dries acting in effect like a time release capsule. Solid particles are pressed together, and water and air are squeezed out. This process makes the soil sterile and environmentally inert. Those who practice the fine art of bonsai have known for years the very special qualities that professional bonsai soil imparts to soil mixes.
