Biochar is an agricultural charcoal with high surface area per unit of volume and low residual resins to contribute to better soil and growing conditions for plants. Biochar occurs from heating of biomass at extremely high temperatures in a no or low oxygen conditions. This results in a material that is highly porous and allows for long term nutrient and water holding capabilities. Biochar assists in bio remediation of soil by allowing proper absorption rate of fertilizers and organics. In addition, it helps prevent leaching and runoff. Biochar elemental state allows it to persist in soils for years with little biological decay. Once added to the soil, it acts as a catalyst to enhance the plants ability to absorb or retain nutrients and water. Biochar also fosters the development of beneficial microorganisms. Greatest gain in plant productivity occurs when added to low PH or acidic soils. It is a great way to store and utilize carbon to assist in plant development. Our biochar is derived from bamboo using an updraft pyrolyzer. It is comprised of powder, granular, and nuggets to assist in downward soil migration.
-Recent study on our biochar by the University of Georgia demonstrated the biochar had a water holding capacity of up to 158.4% (meaning 1.584 kg-water held by 1.0 kg-dry biochar).
19-5-8 plus Bamboo Biochar
Perfect for bamboo care, this time release fertilizer combined with 30% Bamboo Biochar as a soil conditioner. After 20 years of trials, this is the best fertilizer we have found to allow for long term nutrient availability and prevention of excess runoff and leaching.
Buy one and we will include an additional 32 ounce container for free.
For best results, fertilize twice a year. Early spring to encourage new growth and then again during the middle of the growing season to replace any nutrients that are being depleted.
Bamboo Biochar integrated with fertilized potting mix.
Proprietary potting mixed with 20% Bamboo Biochar.
Can be mixed into or replace existing soil. Also makes a great topdressing for existing plantings.

|These are the recommended biochar application rates. Rates could be increased/decreased based upon soil conditions. Biochar can be used annually in conjunction with organics or fertilizers to help soil improvements. Biochar application areas should be watered thoroughly prior and after application. |
