S-Te™ (Kyodama) Growing Medium - Bonsai Succulent Plant Alpine Soil

S-Te™ is a fired clay product with high porosity and a good CEC (cation exchange capacity) and excellent moisture holding capacity. The product has a very high mechanical integrity and is completely frost proof, this ensures that the granules do not break down, even after many years in the pot and so S-Te™ maintains a very high AFP (air filled porosity) this is vitally important to prevent root rot due to saturated conditions, especially in winter.
