(20 customer reviews)

This silica sand is the same kind used in our nursery. It is #20 grade so it is coarse enough to provide drainage without becoming compacted which is important for many carnivorous plants. It also makes an excellent top-dressing to inhibit fungus gnats and help reduce the growth of algae.

Amount: 1/2 gallon

Due to weight, sand must be ordered separately from plants and other fragile items that would be easily crushed during shipping. Orders that contain sand and fragile items together will either be refunded or put on hold until additional shipping charges can be collected to send items separately.
A maximum quantity of 2 bags are allowed per order.

This sand seems to contain very few impurities, however mineral content can vary from one batch to the next so rinsing with distilled water prior to use is still advisable.

    Nice large grains for great drainage! Fairly clean and didn’t require a ton of rinsing. Bag broke in transit from the box itself being punctured by USPS; not the fault of Curious Plants.
