Commercial Growing Mediums Reformulated for the Bonsai Enthusiast

Rooting Mediums
In our effort to keep diversified and to please all schools of thought. We are offering old school rooting mediums and cutting edge mediums such as the Oasis systems. The right medium will make the difference between success and failure. So we choose these products carefully from the thousands out there.


For a state of the art, cutting edge medium. All will truly benefit from ROOTCUBES® growing medium engineered to balance air and water ratios. Hard to root species like Dogwood, Euonymous, Spirea, Picea, and Ilex (just to name a few) have shown to root more quickly than when using traditional media types. Woody plants that have a tendency to rot or have a long rooting time have shown better yields and performance when using ROOTCUBES® medium over perlite or sand pans. Cubes are rigid, open-celled, water-absorbing foams, specifically designed for optimal callus and rapid root formation. Outstanding performance is due, in part, to the unique cell structure, which closely resembles the cellular structure of the plant itself. No need for a dibble board with ROOTCUBES® your ready for business.

Bonsai propagators that live in apartments or don't have the ability to a start a propagation area will benefit with ROOTCUBES®. Just add a humidity dome and light. You can propagate in the house with out your significant other complaining about dirt.

Genesis-Mix is a peat based growing medium for germination and grow on. When seedlings grow, they are usually raised in high density conditions. This due to space limitations which applies to the hobbyist as well as the commercial grower. This high density environment means developing root systems are limited to the confines of a tray or flat. This type of culture requires a highly specialized medium that can provide optimum physical and chemical properties to encourage and promote seedling growth. So get off to the right start with the correct growing medium.
