5hard to find
By glitterpony
I had a really hard time trying to find planting charcoal for terrariums, and was so pleased when I finally found a decent size bag for purchase on amazon. I literally went all over nyc trying to find this stuff. My terrariums look great!

5many uses, good price
By charwoman
Like the first reviewer, I checked a couple of local outlets before finally ordering this from Amazon. I intended to use it not in soil but to filter water, not for drinking but for bathing and for plant use (both collected rain and city water). I take tub baths and had been looking into chlorine filters for the tub, most of them seeming overpriced. I folded about a cup or so into a bandana and tied it around the tub spout. It took a little adjusting to make sure most of the water ran through it but the usually overchlorinated city water was significantly less chlorinated and did not sting my eyes and nose as it normally does. If I used it for nothing else it would be a good bargain. Going to try making 2-3' hose sections with screen ends when the growing season starts, and using those as a filter, as well as a filter from the downspout to the rain barrels.

A good deal, although I do wish I could have found it in my usual shopping areas. I was surprised there wasn't any horticultural/aquaculture charcoal at the home warehouse store near us, especially considering they sell pond equipment.
