Besides good weather and fun times, Summer might bring unwanted guests to your green friends like gnats. These annoying but harmless black flies are looking for a moist soil to set up their breeding ground, and they are very active during the warm seasons.
If your plant got them, most likely you have been watering it too often and that is why gnats are totally head over heels for your plant 😀
No worries, this can be easily controlled if action is taken as soon as you see them around.
We strongly recommend getting soil moisture meter. This tool will help you to understand when your plant is ready for a drink and to avoid over-watering.
Grab the tools and fight those flies!! I am sure you will win this battle 😀
GREEN LUCK TO YOU!

|High Light||South or southwest-facing windows. Direct sunlight.|
|Medium Light||East or West facing windows. Partial, filtered or indirect sunlight.|
|Low Light||North-facing windows. No more then 20 feet from the window. Bright fluorescent light at least 8-10 hours a day.|
Note: if you can’t read a book as it is too dark in a certain areas than it is too dark for any plant as well.
Window direction is not the only factor to understand your light situation. What is outside the window makes a big difference. Another building, large tree, etc. will block direct light and will effect lighting environment.
