akadama bag

There is nothing I can do about this. The irony is that I do NOT at all endorse the usage of akadama for collected conifers and I do NOT endorse the usage of akadama in general in cold climate where trees will freeze. Akadama will decompose when the pot is frozen and it will deteriorate into clay which is very bad in a bonsai pot. Very old collected conifers are often NEVER repotted or after ten, twenty years. This is professional to do, but not with akadama. it is highly dangerous to use it, it is expensive, there are many much better and cheaper solutions available everywhere. Plant this RMJ into akadama and it will die within a year. There is a reason why this kind of tree is planted into pure coarse pumice or lava.
