Questions & Answers

Would this be able to be used to cover the soil under gnat larvae to prevent them from hatching?

The answer is yes! There have been fungus gnats and their larvae attacking my house in the worst way. My nose would be filled with them as they were hatching on a daily basis. It is a nuisance to have to deal with these little critters. Every time I tap on my plants, a gnat will fly out. If this happens, I cover the entire top soil area of the plant with this sand. Despite covering 5 plants and still having tons of sand left over, I had enough to cover all of them. It was a concern for me that I would have a hard time watering my plants, but it does just fine. My plants don't seem to be affected by the sand in any way. After one week, I no longer had any gnats in my home. In my house, there were no gnats for several days after I managed to prevent the hatching of the eggs. My friend and I are absolutely in love with this product, and we could not recommend it

Do you know what the color of this sand is?

The color is tan, and it is sand. There is no big watering issue on this land, as the sand is really fine and fine. It just means I have to water a little bit more slowly because the water will filter through the sand first.

Do you know if anyone has used it in kids sand tables?

The sand was used to decorate a table and to hold my daughter's beach The sand makes it ideal for kids to play in. My recommendation is not to do this. I haven't filled a table with that coarse sand, and one bag would not be enough to do the job. The size of each bag is about the same as that of a sugar bag. Sand that is presented in larger bags by the likes of Home Depot is a different grain and would be better suited for this purpose. Please accept my sincere thanks for your help!

How can this be used to start rose ?

My experience with growing roses from cuttings is limited, so I wouldn't use it by itself. The only thing that you will need is sand to complete the project. This is supposed to be a top dressing, but I mix a little bit into my soil, 10% to 15% A volume share of 15% is achieved.

A solution to our gnat problem was found
4/5

Together, the sand and the Mosquito Bits from Summit Responsible Solutions Neither of them was able to handle our severe gnat infestation. The bugs flew everywhere in the office and got in the way while conducting meetings, etc. I gave it a 4 because when the sand gets wet, it looks like clumps of a wet mess, and it doesn't seem to dry. No, we do not have a cat in the office Nevertheless, it looks as though there is one at the beach. I find it to be unattractive in the office. It does not matter whether you add more sand, because when you water it, it returns.

5/5

My yucca plant loves this, and I can mix it in with the soil. I have a succulent garden. Excellent product. I will purchase In addition, the texture was excellent. It was not too small nor too large.

During a visit to Wally World, I discovered that 1110 Desert Sand was the best price I could find for sand to top off the succulents I saved from death by being shoved into a dark corner
5/5

Now succulents are all the rage, but they require a layer of sand or stone between them and the soil in order to keep them healthy and dry. The sand arrived in perfect condition, sealed without a grain of sand ever spilling. I like the price, the color and the care taken.

We will no longer have to spend money on succulent dirt
5/5

It is not uncommon for me to use a lot of soil when growing plants indoors and outdoors. There was a mess and a lot of work involved in buying separate soil mixes for succulents and non succulents. I was very happy to find this sand. I would recommend it. Great quality, great size, and great price! To create my own succulent mix, I combine regular potting soil, this sand, and perlite. I find that the products are a better quality than the mix sold in stores.

It will change the way you get rid of indoor plant pests forever! The product is an absolute game changer
5/5

I am so sad that I didn't find In the past, I've moved countless plants outside of my house to keep them away from worms and gnats, only to have them die when it gets cold. Although I bought every organic pesticide I could find online and tried every natural remedy, none of them The top layer soil of all my indoor plants have been covered with this sand for one week now, and my problem has been solved! It has been a month, and I am still stunned! The use of this product has not been hampered by bugs.

Those gnats are doing their best to get out
5/5

There were office plants infested in our office. Gnats turned the office flora into a zoo and made it unpleasant for the humans who lived there. It was imperative that the gnats were exterminated as early as possible. There is one gardening website that suggests discarding about a third of the soil and replacing it with sand. Sand, it is said, dries faster than soil, so fungus gnats don't like moist soil. This is what the Interweb has to say. As instructed, we did what we had to do. You are now free of those pesky fungus gnats! Our primary goal was to get rid of the gnats, but the sand did look pretty on the plants as well. The sand is finely ground, so one bag will last a long time. The sand I put in my flowerpots now deters fungus gnats and is a nice touch. It is a product I would recommend.

By laying sand on top of the lawn, you'll keep the bugs out! Some of my plants started getting lots of small bugs recently and I discovered that they love to lay their eggs in moist soil
5/5

Therefore, one suggestion was to put sand on top of the soil so it would dry faster, preventing the bugs from laying eggs, breaking the lifecycle. So far, so good! I figured I would just try it out and see what happens! The number of bugs has greatly decreased over the past few days. While wondering why I still had some, I realized they were going through the holes in the bottom of my pot since they could not access it from the top! got rid of the problem by putting sand in a dish and using my pot to place on top of that. They no longer emerged from the dish, so I was no longer concerned. For the quick and easy repair it provided to my plants, I think the price was worthwhile. I never thought I would pay money for sand, but the cost was definitely worth the convenience it provided.

Fungus gnats are prevented from landing on top of plants using this product
5/5

The top of my pants will be covered by this. A plant I bought from a big tool store had fungus gnats, and when I planted it, I spread them to all of my other During my research, I came across some articles suggesting that sand can be spread on the soil to prevent gnats from laying Thanks to it, I've been able to learn a lot! As well as looking nice, it is also very simple to use. It is recommended that you bottom water your plants if you can. I needed this sand for a purpose, and it is affordable and designed to make the task simpler.
