I too don't think Aqua Soil is just 'baked clay'. After all I must me the
Aqua Soil poster boy. $60 IS too much pay for a bag that most shops in Japan
carry for around $23. And this is for a big 9-liter bag. True, I too do not
know the all the spices and herbs in Aqua Soil, but it has worked better for
me than one true baked clay I used, Akadama. BTW, my water lilies in the
pond outside seemed to love a nice pot filled with Akadama. Got lot's of
blooms out of them.

Cathy is right Art. Aqua Soil flavors are slightly different. I too thought
they were the same, but I remember seeing something about this in Do! aqua,
ADA newest publication. The English instructions fail to mention a lot about
their products.
