  • $13.00


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

  • Pre Mixed & Ready To Use - Sifted Prior To Bagging - 1/4 Hard Japanese Akadama - 1/4 USA Pumice - 1/4 New Zealand Pine Bark and 1/4 Haydite
  • Promotes Excellent Drainage & Water Retention - Specifically formulated for Succulent & Cactus
  • Non-Organic Mix - This mix is made up of primarily non-organic components (no dirt). This is really substrate. This has been found to provide optimal drainage, water retention, nutrient uptake and air to the roots (which they love).
  • Easy Zip Resealable Bag - Simply tear off the top then reseal the easy to close resealable bag over and over until you are ready to re-order soil.
  • 100% Money Back Guarantee - If you are not 100% happy with this product, we will refund you in full.

This is the best soil i've ever used

I purchased this soil on a whim from Amazon three years ago. Since then I've graduated to ordering directly from Superflybonsai. It is hands down the best soil i've ever used. My succulents weren't very happy after a few months in Miracle Grow cactus mix. They started showing signs of stress and several died. Over the last few years, they have rebounded and thrown out so many pups that I am now giving succulents away! Gradually i've transplanted all of my plants to this mix. They seem really happy and to develop a great root system. Best of all they seem hardy, healthy and not waterlogged. I will continue to buy this as long as it's available and would 100% recommend it to anyone with succulents/cactuses. I wish this company supplied regular soil mix because i have a few regular plants that need soil and I'm afraid to buy regular soil lol. Also, i've never seen any pests in this soil. Lastly, after my purchase, the owner reached out with a personal email to thank me! I can't remember the last time that happened. Definitely solidified my decision to keep purchasing

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • 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.
