Thanks for your reply but it didn't quite apply to my question. I asked how to combat ants when applying DE to the plates that potted plants sit on. The idea came from Paul Wheaton's article on the topic.

Hello. I'm completely new to this topic but read in one of Paul Wheaton's articles that food grade DE is a good ant deterrant around plants and potted plants. Here's my question. The article said that the DE only works when dry. How does one apply the DE to the base plate of a pot and not have it get wet? I assume that after each watering, the water drips down through the pot and onto the plate, ruining the DE.

Would someone please explain the usage of DE with a potted plant. Thanks!
