I have news! I found a supplier of Pumice in Canada! It’s marketed under the name Kanuma Soil and it can be found in Bonsai stores.
Okay, so that’s the good news. The bad news is…I haven’t found an Ontario supplier yet. So, if you are in BC, you are super lucky because you can buy Kanuma Soil for under $35 for a 17 lbs bag and pick it up at the nursery for free. If you are in Ontario like me, you have to ship it, and as we are all fast discovering, shipping rocks is expensive. I, however, am so tired of mixing soils/stones/substrates and I never seem to get it quite right so I bit a big bullet and ordered two 17 lbs bags of Pumice. While shipping was expensive, it was still cheaper than buying a small bag from the States and shipping to Canada, so maybe that’s a bit of justification? And Christmas is coming, right?! Either way, what is done is done, and I can’t wait for it to arrive! I hope 34 lbs is enough to last me a few years. I might still mix it with my poultry grit and clay to make it last longer 😀
This is where I bought it…happy shopping!
