Direct from Japan, this clay aggregate is unmatched in it's ability to hold nutrients and moisture whilst never compromising excellent porosity. It's totally neutral in pH, perhaps leaning towards lightly acidic if left wet for extended periods of time. It's also a tremendous option for increasing surface area for beneficial bacteria and fungi to support secondary fibrous roots in it's fantastically complex porous structure.

Akadama clay is renowned for it's role in traditional bonsai cultivation, where it's properties are particularly valued for promoting root development and overall plant health.
