I just top watered one of my VFT pots that has been showing some yellow leaves lately and slowed growth all of a sudden and as some of the water pooled around the bottom of the pot in a previously dry saucer I noticed that small peat debris in the water are slightly wiggling around. After a bit of concentrated starring i've noticed several millimeter long thin (thinner than hair) worms wiggling around... Some of them get stuck to small peat debris and that is what caught my attention initially
Could these be the nematodes that are causing my VFT the harm? I don't think that these are fungus gnats larvae since the pot was in a dry saucer and these worms are just too thin and small. If they are how do I get rid of them?
I tried taking videos where the wiggling of peat debris can be spotted. Can't see the worms with it though.
Here they are for entertainment purposes:
1) look at thecenter of the video frame
2) center but slightly shifted right.
