Possible fungus gnats
I saw the thread on fungus gnats and wondered if that is what my buggy problem is. I know that if you put a banana peel into a bottle, cover it tightly with saran wrap, poke a tooth pick hole into the middle of the wrap and set out where you have fruit flies, that they will go into the jar and be trapped. I did this and none of my little flying bugs on my one brugmancia cutting went into the bottle.
I had no bugs until Valentine's Day when my husband brought me home potted blooming plants-tulips and orchids--from Walmart. Now WOW! By the way, I went to the Walmart garden shop and they have clouds of these little bugs flying around.
So I put 3 slices of potato on my plant's soil and now there are little tiny silvery bugs on them and my flying bugs have really multiplied.
So I guess it is fungus gnats. I can't find the mosquito dunks at Walmart like they used to have, now they just have some little poison pellets.
Sigh. Any other advice? Thanks.
