Discover the exceptional qualities of Hard Akadama, a premium soil medium sourced directly from the renowned red jade soil of Ibaraki, Japan. This high-quality volcanic soil is the perfect choice for cultivating bonsai trees, cacti, succulents, and a wide range of other plants.

Hard Akadama boasts a unique composition that sets it apart from other soil media. Its round, fresh auburn particles are derived from volcanic ash, creating a high-permeability medium that excels in both water absorption and drainage. This optimal balance ensures that your plants receive the moisture they need while preventing waterlogging and root rot.

Key benefits of Hard Akadama:

* Offers additional benefits when used as a component in mixed soil substrates, enhancing overall soil quality
* Slightly acidic pH (6.9) and nutrient-rich composition, including essential elements such as SiO2, CaO, MgO, and more
* Sourced directly from the second hard red jade soil of Ibaraki, Japan, ensuring authenticity and quality

The unique properties of Hard Akadama make it a highly sought-after soil medium in countries like Japan. Its round shape and porous structure facilitate excellent water storage and drainage, creating the perfect balance for your plants' roots. When mixed with other substances at a ratio of 30-35%, Hard Akadama's effect is comparable to that of peat, making it a versatile and effective choice for all kinds of potted plants.
