So I found a lil black fly around my avs. First time I ignored it. Around the third time of spotting it I looked it up. I figured it was a fungus gnat and people suggested letting the soil dry out and watering with a lil bit of soap. I had just watered, but I also read to maybe repot it. That's what I did and in the middle of repotting I saw one of them in the soil! It flew away when I moved my av around. So, repotted my four avs and let it go dry for two days. Haven't seen the black flies again. My poor blossoms tho, some buds had dried out on the only av I had flowering. Another av had a sucker (a single tiny leaf emerging on the side where a leaf had been broken off) that died before it had a chance to grow.
