Fine cedar mulch instead of pine bark?

Post  EpicusMaximus on Sat Sep 22, 2012 2:37 am

Can fine cedar mulch be used instead of pine bark in bonsai soil mix?

I am asking because so far I have been unable to find pine bark in my area but plenty of finely shredded "natural" cedar mulch...

Thanks!

What I use is a composted pine bark product aka Fafard Soil Conditioner, come in a purple bag. Cedar might rob the soil of nitrogen as it breaks down.

Thanks, I found some today in a small garden center. All the big garden centers had was pine bark nuggets.

I also found MVP turface.
