Hey guys
Has anyone ever tried pool filter sand as a topping on coco to control fungus gnats ? I figured it would have good drainage and be quite coarse .. guessing more accessible and cheaper than diamateoucos earth etc ....
?

Some pool filter sand is diatomaceous earth. Diatomaceous earth works so well because it is like tiny shards of glass give the bugs a really hard time - death by 1000 cuts. Stuff that is not diatomaceous earth will not have the same effect.

Hey thanks bro
