How to use the Bonsai Soil Mix

Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Bonsai soil. Add a small layer of Bonsai mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Bonsai soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Bonsai soil. 

Lightly pat the Bonsai mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Bonsai mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Bonsai mix works. 

Bonsai are very delicate plants that need the best quality care available to thrive. The bonsai mix should not get hard when dry and have a good amount of aeration and drainage. The addition of pumice & perlite supplies this.

The lava rock helps with the structure of the roots and weighs them down, stopping your bonsai from getting top-heavy. 

    The original habitat of the Bonsai plants

    While bonsai don’t exactly come from nature, they do have a specific substrate requirement. This Japanese art form keeps the trees small, usually also in mini-containers compared to the large root system the plant develops in the wild. Gritty and quick-draining soil is key for the success of your bonsai. This Bonsai mix has it all!

    How to care for Bonsai  plants

    Bonsai trees are more delicate than your average houseplant. Note that it is tree-specific, and we will only give you some basics to go by.

    Fertilising regularly during the growing season is a must, the root system & soil volume is small, so nutrients go quickly. To combat this, the Bonsai Mix has worm castings added in, which release nutrients slowly into the bonsai mix.

    For the perfect watering schedule, do some research on the type of tree you have. As for light requirements, bright indirect light is best for most, but again, do research on your specific tree.

          Socially responsible production

          At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


          Take Peter for example:

          Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

          What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

          Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

          We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

                      FAQ's

                      How much Bonsai mix do I need?

                      Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Bonsai mix you need.

                      When do I need to re-feed the soil?

                      The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

                      How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

                      You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

                      When do I repot the plant?

                      We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
                      - You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
                      - The soil dries very quickly between watering
                      - The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
                      - Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
                      - Every 1 to 2 years

                      How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

                      Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

                      You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

                      How to water plants grown on the Bonsai mix

                      Water the soil only when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dried out. You can test this out by poking your finger in the soil to feel around.

                      It is fine to let it dry out a bit more sometimes if you forget it as the deeper soil will retain moisture for longer. This will also help the roots to grow deeper.

                      Goed product voor bonsai

                      Het is een goede mix, als je zelf niet alle ingredienten voorhanden hebt,
                      Wel is de witte perliet storend als toplaag, ik dek het af met akadama

                      Hi H,

                      Dank voor je review! Bedoel je hiermee dat het perliet naar boven drijft? Het werkt goed om de pot van onder water te geven, dan voorkom je het probleem dat je een compleet witte laag van perliet bovenaan je plant krijgt.

                      Je Akadama oplossing is ook een goeie!

                      Die Erde ist Top, nur der Verkäufer sollte nicht mehr mit dpd zusammen arbeiten. Wir wissen alle wie DPD arbeitet ??????

                      Hallo Batman,

                      Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung und das Teilen Ihres Feedbacks mit uns. Nach vielen Tests und Recherchen sind wir zu dem Schluss gekommen, dass DPD derzeit der beste Transporter ist. Wir planen, in Zukunft mehrere Transporter einzusetzen, sind aber noch nicht so weit.

                      Wenn Sie Präferenzen für andere Transportunternehmen haben, teilen Sie uns dies bitte mit, da wir Ihre Meinung gerne in unsere Entscheidungsfindung einbeziehen würden.
