Charcoal is often used in indoor plant cultivation for several reasons:

  1. Soil drainage and aeration: Charcoal is porous, allowing better circulation of air and water in the soil. When mixed with potting soil, it helps improve drainage, preventing the build-up of stagnant water that can lead to root rot.

  2. Water filtration: Charcoal has filtering properties and can help remove impurities and toxins from irrigation water. This can be particularly useful if you use tap water, which may contain chemicals such as chlorine.

  3. Odour control: Charcoal is an excellent odour absorber. By incorporating it into the substrate of your houseplants, it can help eliminate unpleasant odors, especially those associated with organic decomposition or excess humidity.

  4. Disease and parasite prevention: Charcoal has antifungal and antibacterial properties. Its use in soil can help prevent certain plant diseases caused by fungi or bacteria. In addition, it can deter certain harmful parasites, such as insect larvae, from developing in the soil.

It should be noted that charcoal should be used sparingly, as excessive amounts can affect the balance of the soil and harm the plants. It is recommended to mix charcoal with existing substrate or potting soil, generally at a rate of 10 of the total volume of the mixture.
