Why You Shouldn't Use Akadama In Bonsai Soil
Akadama is a type of granular clay of volcanic origin found only in Japan.
Unlike other similar materials, it retains moisture for longer, making it ideal when you want to grow plants that need a lot of water, but without getting waterlogged.
Well, we know that akadama promises great benefits for the soil of your plants, but should you really use it?
This substrate is normally used for bonsai, but it is also highly recommended to use it when you have acidophilic plants that live in a not very suitable climate (for example, Japanese maples that live in the Mediterranean region).
Akadama is a popular soil additive, but is it really necessary? Today the creators of We are The Bonsai Supply are sharing their experience with it and the reasons why you should or shouldn't use Akadama in your bonsai soil.
