While most people believe that house plants die from neglect, over-watering, bacterial growth, and root rot are actually the most common things to kill your green friends. By providing a healthy environment for roots to thrive and water to drain, you can keep them alive for years to come.

These small pieces of binchotan charcoal are ideal for creating a healthy environment for terrariums and providing drainage for temperamental houseplants. Using it is easy:

  • For houseplants: Add a few inches of Binchotan Potting Charcoal to the bottom of a pot before adding soil. This allows excess water to pool away from the roots and is especially important for planters without a drainage hole.

  • For terrariums: Add a layer of Binchotan Potting Charcoal on top of gravel at the bottom of your container. Next, add a layer of sphagnum moss and fill with succulent potting mix before planting. The charcoal layer will help minimize odors and bacteria and is a must for closed terrariums.
