Fungus Gnats

 Does anyone have some Pingiculas or other easy-care carnivorous plant to swap? I could use some to put amongst my seeding cups.

Lately I am baking new potting mix at 205 deg F for 60 minutes, before using

it.  I figure this is killing the incoming eggs.

Yellow sticky traps have dramatically reduced the gnats, but I still see

some every day.  And I think they are infesting my Hippeastrum roseum bulbs,

as Josh mentioned.

They are most annoying!!!!  I will try the hydrogen peroxide treatment.

Also now that my Pinguiculas are coming out of hibernation, they will

miraculously eliminate the remaining infestation.  Fungus gnats are only

troublesome during winter in my house!  Is there a year-round Pinguicula???

I don't think so.
