  • $30.00


Superdite (expanded shale - haydite)
Superdite is commonly used in bonsai as soil for many different types of trees. You will find superdite primarily in bonsai soil mixes as it helps allow air to the roots, prevent compaction and it retains water while releasing it slowly to the roots.  

Superdite is basically just haydite from a mine that sieves and sizes this perfectly for our use.  Superdite is black in color and looks similar to black lava without the holes.

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?
Superdite is produced by expanding and vitrifying selected shale in a rotary kiln at temperatures in excess of 2000°F.  This Superdite is sourced in the northeast.


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.
2.5 Qt = @ 12 Cups
1.25Qt = @ 6 Cups
