River sand is considered as sterilised growing media. In comparison to ordinary soil, it does not attract bugs or pest. It also provides protection from termites. It improves overall health of plants by making stronger root development. Use of River sand for better drainage in soil is appreciated by plant lovers all over the world.
River sand is good for soil of succulents, cactus and many more plants. Some plant lovers like to propagate succulents by their leaves with river sand (We have shared the image). Use of river sand is very popular for growing seedlings of cactii, Adenium, Areca Palm and many more plants.
We may consider it a substitute of Perlite while making potting soil for Adenium, Rose and other plants. This is widely used with potting soil of most plants. But river sand cannot absorb oxygen or needful nutrients, however this can be done efficiently with use of crushed Leca, perlite or pumice stones.
Use of this river sand in your potting soil, will not let your soil compact. Use of more cocopeat in soil, make the soil the too moist which is not good for most of the plants. Moreover during winter or monsoon season, the soil does not dry out easily due to more use of cocopeat. To come over this problem, use of natural river sand in soil is recommended.
Use of River sand in aquarium bed is necessary for better growth and health of fishes. This can be used for Aquarium soil also. However, use of coarse river sand for Aquarium is more helpful in maintaining clarity of your aquarium water. During scheduled servicing / cleaning of your Aquarium, coarse river sand can be easily cleaned (by removing poop and fish food etc.). That will not make your aquarium water muddy. We can observe fishes playing with the sand in aquarium just like our children.
Sand is also useful for our children as a play activity. Some interior designers use sand with water fountains as well.
This is also used for various home decor projects, DIY, Rangoli etc. This can also be utilised for hot roasting of ground nut, popcorn etc.
Moreover, river sand is used in Havan Pujan (Yagya) also. Applications of river sand are beyond count and depends upon individual creativity.
