TOPIC: This soil any good?

This soil any good? 10 months 3 weeks ago #30664

Hey guys, i will need to repot my chinese elm soon. I live in Poland and dont have a lot of options for bonsai soils (there is not even a single bonsai club in my city:/).
I heard from a friend that this one is good. allegro.pl/gotowa-mieszanka-do-bonsai-1l-vip-i5107964532.html .
It's a mix of : hard akadama, peat, lava, zeolite, kreamite and river gravel.

Is it any good? I guess its better then the regular soil it came with.

Its all written in polish, I dont think many here could read it. Picture looks fine, soil should be fine looking at the mixture ingredients you are giving.

Im not sure what zeolite, kreamite are, ive never heard of them. but as long as the soil drains well AND can hold moisture (which lava and peat does well, then it should be good. There is no magic recipe for soil, as long as it drains and holds moisture. it should be ok, sounds like its designed for bonsai.
