SuperFly Bonsai's Monterey Pine Bark
Pine Bark is commonly used in bonsai as an additive to soils. This pine bark is aged which causes it to break down much slower than standard pine bark.  In tests, this bark has been know to last up to 10 years in a pot.  Our pine bark is the perfect addition to non-organic bonsai soil as it will provide an organic element that wont break down which allows beneficial bacteria to thrive.   The perfectly sifted bark complements standard bonsai substrate size and aids in drainage unlike other organic elements.  Pine bark will also retain moisture while not compacting the soil.

Partical Size
From 1/16" - 1/4"

Is It Dirt?
No. Bonsai trees do not like "dirt" and will in most cases die if left in dirt over long periods of time. This is similar to a substrate.

What Is In It?
This is the bark from a Monterey Pine Tree grown in a renewable man planted forest in New Zealand.  The bark is aged to make it harder which allows it to last in a bonsai pot for many years. 

How Do I Use It?
Repot your bonsai tree in this mixed with other bonsai soil amendments to promote great moisture retention and drainage. Be sure your bonsai pot has holes in the bottom covered by bonsai mesh.
Each micro climate may require different amounts of water. On very hot/dry days you may need to water two/three times while around freezing you may need to water just once per month. Push your finger 1" into the soil and feel for moisture. If it is dry, it is time to water.

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.
