That's a lot of flies and midges for this time of year :shock: !

Oh, and by the way, very nice flower, nicely grown  :tu:

Hi Argo, i too think you should check for larvae. They thrive in peat mix and can be very dangerous. They ate my very first pings years ago, no issue with pure lava rock (lapillo frantumato con una mazzetta).

Hi Jeff, hi Pico, thanks a lot!

my p. Giganteas have not problems, they are too big for be damnaged for fungus gnat larvae... I had a lot of sharides in other butterworth substrate (pure sphagnum moss), but I have used bacillus thurigiensis, and removed the single larvae.. at the moment no problems, the small seedlings grow well too:yes:

Bonjour

a good solution the bacillus thurigiensius  for the larvae  but not for the adult  , uses for them yellow gooey plates ,

I think it is necessary to eradicate the 2 otherwise the problem will come back
