How would I use this product to prevent gnats in my indoor plants? Should I mix it through a homemade soil, or just use on the bottom or top layer? Thank you in advance.
Asked by: OumBinat
Thank you for the question. Most customers tell us that a nice top coating of sand is the most effective way to prevent gnats in potted plants.

Sometimes I’ll even go through our campfire ashes and pick out the larger bits of unburned bio-char and mix them in the garden soil or in potted plants. I know that plants like it because when I am harvesting in the fall, I will find those bits of bio-char completely surrounded with tiny plant roots, as though they found it and are trying to get as much out of it as possible. I like that this brand is organic, although there is no data about how it is produced. I less like the fact that it comes from China, which makes me question the organic quality and lack of production information even more. Still, I am glad that this product is available. Although it has been used for thousands of years, bio-char is hard to find on a retail level. Do your research and determine the proper application rate for your conditions, since professional publications seem to differ quite a bit on this.

This is a product you would use in the bottom of your potted plants to keep the water from getting stagnant and your planting medium from stinking to high heaven. Use anywhere from 1/2" to 2" deep depending upon the size of the planter. The chips are fairly uniform in size. I've included coins in the photo so you can get a size comparison. I've purchased bags of charcoal before in which the pieces had varying degrees of "doneness." These are all the same. There aren't any that are underdone and would be prone to rotting. This isn't a product that you HAVE to use in your potted plants but highly recommended for those indoor ones, especially.
