The ancient art of Bonsai has endured for centuries and many of the plants grown represent many years work and care. Debco’s experience with professional growers of Bonsai has enabled the development of a formulation that meets the essential needs of this type of plant culture. The selection of specific grades of composted pine bark and coarse sand is designed for the traditional shallow pots used to grow Bonsai and the plants species that are commonly grown.
The structure of the potting mix is important, equally so is a blend of balanced plant nutrients that will feed the plant during the growing season. To make Bonsai Potting Mix simple to use, Zeolitehas been included. Zeoliteis a mineral clay that assists with the retention of essential plant nutrients and minimises the risk of too much fertiliser being available to the plant.
HOW TO USE
All Bonsai should be re-potted periodically. The reason for this is to minimise the gradual but constant compression of the potting mix in the pot, provide fresh growing media for better growing conditions for your bonsai and to allow for pruning of the roots.The best time for re-potting or planting a new Bonsai is in late winter or early spring prior to new growth appearing.
