That is correct! It protects against excess moisture and prevents root rot. I’ve made these without the charcoal and ended up with the algae issue too!

Hi Lindsay,

The gravel and charcoal at the bottom of the glass acts as a drainage system to prevent the soil from staying too moist.

You sure can! They thrive during the dog days of summer! You can bring them in when it gets cold, just make sure to set them directly in the window as they need lots of sun.
