    Looking for Soil Mix Makeup for Gardenia Bonsai

    Aloha Y'all,

    My first thread and hopefully many more to come in learning about Bonsai. I am looking for a soil mix that would be good for a Gardenia Bonsai I am planning on doing. Any recommendations?

    Whatever your usual mix should be fine. I don't think thre is anything different needed.

    Geoff, Thanks. I mixed my bonsai mix with the soil from the nursery container (mostly peat and loam) to give it more drainage properties. So far so good. I will update with a pic at a later time.

    Be careful using peat, it will not drain wel, and if it gets dry it is difficult to get wet again.
