A Little About Pumice . . .

Pumice may seem to be a somewhat expensive planting medium,
however, unlike mosses or soil, it can be used over and over
again.

Kanuma Pumice   

This is the pumice that holds the most moisture.  It promotes a
high degree of root growth.  It is similar in moisture retention to
sphagnum moss.  We have found this to be very good for our
Disa orchids.

Akadama Pumice

This is the "middle of the road" pumice.  It does not retain as
much moisture as Kanuma, but does retain more than Huga
pumice.

Huga Pumice

Huga pumice holds the least moisture.  It is best for plants where
you want very fast drainage and little moisture retention - such as
Goeringii and cymbidium sinense.
We only have the
small size grade in the
Kanuma pumice.

Please note: Pumice is quite heavy and is somewhat
expensive to ship
.  A USPS Priority Mail medium flat rate
box will hold 2-1/2 gallons of pumice and the shipping cost
alone is $13.65 (as of 2/5/18).

If you can purchase it locally, it will probably be much more
economical.  

If you want to mail order, you should purchase the 2-1/2
gallons to take advantage of the flat rate shipping box.
