    Hi! I recently purchased this product for house plants and I have noticed that the pumice is turning brown. Do you know the reason for this? Thank you!

      Hello Whitney. Pumice will darken when mixed with darker soil products or poor water. It will not affect performance.

      Have a great week

      Thanks

    Hi! I’ve read in one of the reviews that this got rid of the gnats. I’ve been seeing them around my indoor plants lately. Can I use this as top dressing for my lettuce and ginger plants? Thanks

      Thanks for the message. I dont think pumice will work on its own. I would reach out to your local hardware store, preferably a smaller place like ACE and see if they have bifenthrin for your application needs. Its sold in many forms including sprays, drench and systemic. I prefer bayer products. Try and find the smallest container possible as most bottles can treat ten thousand plants. If you have extra it can be used for insect control around your house. It also kills fire ants.

      Have a great week. please call or email if you have questions or concerns.

      Thanks! Can I still use the pumice as their top dressing though?

      Thanks for the reply. Pumice will float away and will turn brown if your water has a high iron content. Its not an ideal top dressing but will work if you are able to manage it.

      Talk soon
      Thanks

      Thanks for the message. Our pumice comes from three suppliers. Some are from Asia and others are within the USA.

      Have a great week. Please call or email if you have questions or concerns.

  4. Question

    Gerre McKenzie

    I have a large strawberry pot that I am going to plant with succulents. Planting Hens & chicks in the vertical openings and cannot use your gritty mix because it falls out. Am thinking about purchasing your Pumice to supplement pre-made cactus succulent soil ( Sphagnum Peat Moss, Composted Forest Products, Sand and Perlite ) since this stays compact enough that it does not fall out. Does this sound like a good plan and if so what ration should I add the pumice to the soil. Thank you for your assistance!

      Thanks for the message. Its tough to advise on a mix without testing it. I think you will be fine with up to 30 percent pumice.

      Have a great week
      Thanks

  5. Question

    Betsy (verified owner)

    Hi, I ordered your pumice and have used some of it when repotting some plants. I was wondering if there is a recommended way to store it since it might tell me awhile to go through it. (live in an apartment)

    Great product and great service too!

      Thanks for the message. The product will last forever if stored properly. The organic particles will not start to break down until they are used in a planter or are exposed to moisture. The product does ship with some Florida humidity. It’s a good idea to let the soil crispen in the sun, if damp, if you plan on storing it for more than a year. You can also store the product with the bag open to allow air flow.

      Have a great week
