Pumice - USA Bonsai, Cactus & Succulent Pumice Soil
SuperFly Bonsai's USA Sourced Pumice
Pumice is commonly used in bonsai as soil for many different types of trees. You will find pumice primarily in bonsai soil mixes as it helps dry out the mix. One of the biggest benefits of pumice is it's ability to retain some moisture while allowing air to the roots. Pumice generally will not break down over time so it can be used over and over again. This is one of the three primary ingredients in the well known "Boons Mix" (Pumice, Akadama, Lava)
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?
Pumice is a type of Volcanic rock. Ours is mined out of California. The pumice may contain a small amount of cinder which is also a volcanic rock which is formed around pumice.
How Do I Use It?
Repot your bonsai tree in this soil if your tree likes dry conditions 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.

Everything I expected 👍
I ordered on a Monday and by Friday my pumice was delivered. Very high quality pumice with very little dust (I skip sifting). This paired perfectly with my Akadama that I ordered as well and some crushed lava that I sourced elsewhere. I would order again in a heartbeat!
High quality pumice. And outstanding service.

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.
