I got a "recipe" from this site from Will Creed. I had probs with fungus gnats and learned these nuisances come from poor soil...so, Mr Creed suggested making up batches of 'home-made' potting soil. Buy peat moss and perlite. Mix 3-4 parts peat moss to 1 part perlite. Use warm water to moisten this mix initially. I feel liberated from store-bought soil...this recipe works like a hot-damn...enjoy...gwen
