SuperFly Bonsai's Imported Japanese Hyuga Pumice

Hyuga Pumice is commonly used in bonsai as soil for many different types of trees. You will find Hyuga primarily in soil mixes as it is the primary water retaining ingredient. One of the biggest benefits of Hyuga is it's ability to retain moisture while allowing air to the roots. Hyuga pumice generally will not break down over time so it can be used over and over again.

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?
Japanese Hyuga Pumice is a type of Volcanic rock


How Do I Use It?
Repot your bonsai tree in this soil or mix it with other bonsai soil amendments to create your own soil. 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.

Great pumice

First time using the Hyuga but it feels deifferent from American Pumice. I’ll be using it in my refined mix this year and we will see how it holds up. The color of it mixes really well with Akadama and Kiryuzuna.

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.

If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase from Superfly Bonsai, simply contact us to arrange a return.  Items must be returned at your expense.  If you beleive that we messed up somehow please let us know and we will evaluate the situation on a case by case basis.  When a return is authorized simply send the product back in sellable condition for a full refund of the product cost.
