i'd think there are easier/better ways to getting rid
of fungus gnats.  like keeping the soil a bit drier?

One thing that keeps the fungus gnat populations small is having an
assortment of carnivorous plants sprinkled through the greenhouse.  We have
an assortment of Sarracenia, Nepenthes and my favorite, Pinguicula
moranenis, the original fly paper.  Since bringing these in last winter as
part of one of the children's programs, the fungus gnat population has
plummeted.  There are always going to be a few around, but now there are no
huge clouds of them that get in your ears, eyes and nose...

Merrill in Palo Alto, CA   Zone 9/10 where my first Moraea aristata opened
this morning...  Wow!  It just doesn't get any better than that.....  Has
anybody tried to make a tetraploid of this for larger flowers?
