Original Message office plant dying with flies
I had the same problem and was told to put sand on the top of the soil since the gnats can't live in it. You don't have to use playground sand, but you can buy a regular bag of sand where you find lumber in most home depot stores. I did this and used a little vitamin B1, cut back the dead leaves and everything came back great and no more gnats. Hope this helps
