    the gnats

    aren't that bad, but their larvae chew on the small roots and damage them severely.
    I use a BT product called Gnatrol. It can be found in smaller quantities at most local grow shops.
    To help control the adults, I smear "tanglefoot" onto wood shims and stand them near the pots, the adults like to land vertically above the media. I suppose they like to keep an eye on their prodigy.

    Sundews got rid of gnats quickly for me. My apartment complex was having a big problem with them this summer, but I had none in my room because of a single D. adelae.
