Activated charcoal is our preferred base layer for planting in pots without drainage holes. Sometimes called horticultural charcoal, it is "activated" by processing it at very high temperatures. This increases its absorptive properties, which can help protect plants from over-watering. Charcoal is naturally anti-microbial, with a great capacity to absorb impurities and other toxins, helping protect soil and roots from bacterial and fungal growth.
Perfect for terrariums, cachepots, and other closed planting vessels and suitable for use with all houseplants! Add a ¼" - ½" layer at the bottom of vessels without drainage holes, and then pot following normal procedure using clean potting soil. Take care not to over-water.
12oz bag, sufficient for use in 3-4 four inch pots or 2-3 six inch pots. Ships in a biodegradable bag.
Due to customs restrictions, Activated Charcoal cannot be shipped internationally.
This is a great answer to pots with no drainage hole (still gotta be careful though!). I wish they sold it in a larger size because I am definitely going to need more.
Have to use in a plant pots that don’t have drainage holes. It’s a bit hard to find locally so thanks!
I’m so new to plant parenthood that I’m a little intimidated with all I need to do. Haven’t use the charcoal yet.
