Some uses for SumiBall products
SumiBall is made with high-grade organic charcoal, made from sustainable sources of Japanese Cypress and Cedar harvested during essential forestry management. The charcoal is encased in a honeycomb ceramic shell, available in a variety of colours including natural, peach, terracotta, chalk, black and pastel blue, which can be used alone or in combination to make attractive and creative displays.
Just like a water filter in your home, the active core of each Sumi traps unwanted bacteria which cause unsightly algae, unpleasant odours and plant disease. SumiBall is made with high-grade activated charcoal from sustainable sources of cedar and cypress, recognised as a highly effective anti-bacterial filter. The charcoal traps compounds such as formaldehyde and ammonia in a complex microscopic lattice, reduces acidity to a pH of around 6.5, and absorbs liquid to approximately 70% of its volume for slow release direct to roots. SumiBall has a ceramic shell for easy handling, and the shape increases both growing space and oxygenation.
