Supalite Black is an extremely light weight fired clay aggregate that's great for mixing with other bonsai soil ingredients. The open honeycomb structure of this product holds great amounts of water, promotes exceptional air circulation and lots of microbial activity that quickly releases the nutrients from organic fertilizers. The particles are frost proof and so will not break down, even after many years in the pot.
We recommend using this great product in conjunction with other growing media. By blending different products together it's possible to create soil mixes very close to the ideal conditions for individual plants. In our tests we found that using up to 60% by volume produced a very open structure soil that encouraged dense root production. It also reduced the weight of the soil considerably. Up to 60% weight saving over some Japanese soils and 80% lighter than horticultural grit.
