can I use activated charcoal in potted cactus ?

I was recently told about activated charcoal for potted plants, I was told to put a screen in the bottom of the pot so that charcoal can't be lost through drainage holes, then a layer of the charcoal and soil on top of that. My questions are 1)Can this be used for succulents ? 2)what are the benefits? 3) Are there any plants that this could harm?


Thank you,

Sheila

Charcoal for Cactus
by: HFHR

Hi Sheila,
I've used charcoal for my houseplants because it absorbs impurities in the soil such as heavy metals, toxins and even molds. I haven't tried it for cactus or succulents but I don't think it would do any harm.
