Over the past few years, I've developed a decent-sized plant collection. I started out with cactuses and succulents and eventually expanded to tropical plants. Going from having plants that rarely need to be watered to ones that actually need consistent watering has been a struggle for me. I'm always worried about my plants drying out and dying, so I end up giving them too much water. As a chronic overwater-er, my house is a fungus gnat's dream.
My fungus gnat problem became a huge issue a few weeks ago, and I couldn't ignore it anymore. Everything I saw online said to stop overwatering my plants, but it was a little late for that! I found some other good tips that I could try out and found another method on my own. I haven't seen a gnat in at least a week, so I think my infestation is over. I'm in no way a plant expert, but here's my advice for any plant parent dealing with fungus gnats:
