Japanese Volcanic Clays Blended by Hand into Premium Potting Mixes for Cacti and Succulents
CENTURIES OLD JAPANESE TECHNIQUES
The soils and substrates we use in our mix have the benefit of centuries of road-testing by Japanese horticulturalists for use in growing delicate and sensitive bonsai. Today, similar mixes are used by some of the best cacti and succulent growers in Japan and Asia.
UPDATED FOR GROWERS IN THE UK AND EUROPE
Our premium cactus and succulent mixes are a carefully balanced blend of Japanese volcanic clays, grits, pumice, and a dash of coconut coir which results in a fast-draining substrate that can help you maintain the right moisture levels for your plant’s fragile, rot-prone roots.
We have developed this for use in our own small scale nursery where we take a special interest in Copiapoa, Euphorbia, Haworthia, Gymnocalycium and Sulcorebutia.
My succulents really love this mix. I'm very much a newbie at keeping succulents but they are absolutely thriving in Desert Dirt and I'll definitely be back to stock up when it's time to repot :)
Seth was really helpful - and patient. The Desert Dirt was just what I wanted and had seen an expert on succulents using on YouTube. It arrived promptly and very well packaged. My plants look very happy and so am I!
Amazing succulent soil mix. Can be used on it's own for an incredibly well draining, very high quality soil, but can also be used with other soils to improve drainage. Love the overall aesthetics of this soil too! (Makes such a satisfying sound when water is poured over it 😊) Thank you!
