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.

Mosser Lee 2.25 quart dry Horticultural Organic Charcoal is the Very Best for my Violets, Orchids and my Bamboo Plants.It holds moisture yet drains excess water. Great for my potted plants with no holes. My Bamboo lived in water for ten years with little to no growth and I planted it in charcoal and potting soil and it took off. This is a Great Product. Wear your gloves as it is charcoal.

I specifically use it on my indoor plants with a good potting soil. The use of horticultural organic charcoal can benefit your plants with a good base to help prevent soil rot, root rot, and absorb excess moisture. This helps your plants get the water they need without getting too much. Some folks also say that charcoal also provides good aeration in the soil which also promotes plant health. Happy planting.

I use it in the bottom of the pot so the soil does not sit in water and cause rot. I use it in my orchid pots to hold moisture but not to stay wet. That can cause pot. I can only go by what the package says that it removes impurities in the water. I mix it with the soil when I am potting small plants.

I used this charcoal as a base for my terrarium together with small gravel stones. I also used moss to cheer up the plants and it looks great now. I hope the system will sustain long time with little water because of these charcoals. I also have some hanging flower pots on my walls outside my house, I will try to use it in those pots during he summer.

This is my first bag of this charcoal and although I haven't used it for long I am pleased with it so far. I needed to re-pot several of my plants and after research found this product. I used it for my orchid, Bamboo, and for my cactus garden. It has only been a couple weeks, but they all seem to have perked up and the soil no longer has the musty wet smell it had with just using pebbles for drainage. I like that it is organic. The recommended mix is 1 cup of the charcoal to 4 cups of potting soil. I used this for 6 plants and still have enough for future use.

This product is super great for house plants, especially those that require high humidity. Especially excellent for pots with no drain holes, helps to prevent stagnant water. Absorbs water and fertilizers to slowly release them into the soil. You can layer it in the bottom of a pot or mix it into the soil. Don't know if it's suppose to do this or not, but it has helped me by greatly reducing the black gnats that come out of the soil of my house plants this time of the year.

I used the 2.25 Qt. dry horticultural organic charcoal as a important part of my fairy and gardens in glass containers. It is important to drainage and purification in these closed gardens. It also increases drainage in these gardens. I used this in 3 of my closed gardens and even in some of my open pots. I really liked this product and would use it in all my gardens.

This Horticultural Organic Charcoal is designed to be a natural soil conditioner for all potted plants and my cactus needed some help. I mixed one cup of charcoal to four cups of cactus potting mix and re-potted two of my five cactus so far. The two with the charcoal mix seem to be perking up and look more healthy. The charcoal mixes with the potting mix very well.
