interesting, my kids would love to find all the stuff listed! unfortunately, all i get when i use it is a bunch of small twigs. no more or less than i get when i use ada or other clay fired stuff. though in akadama's mfg defence, it is marketed as a bonsai soil, which is what 99% of people use it for here (i get them at local bonsai shows) and the extras dont really matter much, plant wise, but are a big deal to the dept of ag. gotta keep an eye out when i open the next few bags for interesting items now.
