SuperFly Bonsai's Succulent & Cactus Soil Mix

This mix is perfect for succulents and cacti of most types.  When watered this soil stays wet for just the right amount of time before drying.  The components promote air to the root system which makes roots happy.  Happy roots = Happy Plants.  

Is It Dirt?
No. Most Succulents and Cactus do not like "dirt" and will in most cases die if left in dirt over long periods of time. This is substrate.

What Is In It?
The primary components are Akadama, Pumice, Pine Bark and Haydite. These components have been found over time to provide the best drainage, water retention, nutrient retention and air circulation possible to promote healthy succulents and cacti.

- 1/4 Japanese Hard Akadama - is a clay like component that is excellent at retaining water and it breaks down allowing roots to grown in it's place.

- 1/4 USA Pumice - is a volcanic byproduct that is excellent at retaining water and nutrients.

- 1/4 New Zealand Radiata Pine Bark - this bark has proven to last many years in a pot without breaking down.  Pine bark helps hold water and fertilizer that keep succulents and cacti happy.

- Haydite - (expanded shale) has the ability to absorb excess water then release it slowly back to the roots.

1.25 Qt = @ 6 Cups

Succulent & Cactus Soil Mix - Pre-Mixed Fast Draining Blend

Very Nice Product

Nice quality with uniform particles not really needing sifting. I repotted a Desert Rose that was becoming difficult due to poor drainage and it has really responded well. Fast drainage is a true benefit and prevents overwatering.

Great Succulent Soil

Love this product! Don’t have to worry about overwatering your plants. My succulents are thriving and doing great!

High quality substrate

Love this succulent mix! My cacti and succulents are thriving!

Ask a Question
  • Is this succulent and cactus mix good for a money tree?

    It would work great for a money tree!

  • Is this succulent and cactus soil mix be good for planting Lithops?

    The cactus and succulent mix is one of the bast cactus and succulent soils available for lithops as it is substrate based and drains well.  That being said, be sure they are planted in a deeper pot.  A shallow pot will stay wet too long. Our sister company, Deserted Oasis has a lithop mix that is specifically formulated for lithops.  It has a higher pumice content which helps keep it a little more dry.

Plants & Tree Shipping:
We ship bonsai trees and plants from either our parnter nursery or our in house nursery depending on the tree.  We may limit when we ship trees to help limit their exposure to extreme environments.  For example we may not ship if it will cause the tree to sit in a truck over a weekend or holiday.

Many trees are shipped by Fedex from our partner nursery in the south central united states.  Expect delivery to the West Coast to be 4-6 Business days via Fedex Ground.  To the rest of the continental USA it will take 1-4 Business Days.  Please contact us if faster shipping is needed.

If we are shipping from our Harrisburg, PA location, the tree may arrive via any carrier, but usually UPS or USPS.  Delivery is the same as above as far as time in transit.

Trees are shipped in custom boxes made just for shipping trees.  Sometimes we wrap the pot and soil in plastic to prevent it from spilling out in transit.  Many times we use packing peanuts as they have proven to be very reliable in keeping trees safe in shipping.  If a box is noticiably damaged, please take pictures prior to opening.
