Imported Japanese Kanuma
Japanese Kanuma is the perfect soil for acid loving plants. The most common plant to utilize Kanuma for bonsai is azaleas. Azaleas along with Camellias, Gardenias and other acid loving Bonsai can be potting into pure kanuma. Kanuma is a very light volcanic rock that can be a pain when watering as it tends to float a little. While watering may be tough with kanuma, your acid loving trees will be much happier. Kanuma can also be used as an additive to bonsai soil to lower the PH.

Sizes Available:
5mm - Standard Bonsai Use 1/16" - 1/4" - The Most Common Size
7mm - Between 1/4" and 1/2" - Many Use It For Larger Trees
25mm - The largest Size, Most pieces 1/2" - 1"

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 substrate.

What Is In It?
Kanuma is the soil from the Kanuma region of Japan. Kanuma is mined from the ground then baked and sifted to size. Kanuma is excellent at retaining moisture and also promotes great drainage. Kanuma also allows roots to grow through it which helps create a fibrous root ball.
How Do I Use It?
Repot your bonsai tree in this or a mix of this an other bonsai soil amendments. 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 in very low temperatures or very high temps.

    If we are shipping from our Harrisburg, PA location, the tree may arrive via any carrier, but usually UPS or USPS.  Time in transit will be 1-2 days in the northeast, 2-3 days in the southeast, 3-4 days in the midwest and usually 5 days for the west coast.

    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.

    Please Note:  We do not ship plants and trees to California
