|Hi, I am growing peppers in my apartment, but there were a lot of small flyes in the soil. These are the peppers I grow :
-Long thin cayenne
-Sigaretta di bergamo
I cant really differentiate them because they are both in the same species, capsicum annuum. I have 15 of them in my window, and its full.
I think I am gonna put that triple flowerpot at my grandma.
There were lots of small flies because I have used some garden dirt, but Ive put some insecticid and most of them are gone now. After that, the biggest two plants began making some peppers
Also, one plant was already growing one:
I dont hate insecticides, I dont think they affect the naturality of a plant, but I want a "passive" sollition to keep the small flyes population down. A carnivourus plant would be very nice, but there arent so many flies, and in the winter, I dont think there are gonna be any flies. Also, I get a maximum of two hours of sun in the summer, the peppers can grow with that, but the carnivourus plants can? I am in the north of Romania, the wheater is not warm, but I will keep it inside, with a radiator turned on at less than 30cm (~one feet) under it.
So, are there any carnivourus plants that can live with not much light, small insects, but not a lot? I think I can provide the plant humidity and temperature(20-30°C, 70-85°F). Also, I might use some alluminium foil to cover its back, so it will get more light, I have done it on a pepper plant, and it worked.
Btw, what size of flowerpot would be perfect for the peppers, as they grow (outside) one meter, ~three feet?

|Sorry, after looking this day at the plants, I can see they get direct light for 4-5 hours, but only when the sky is clear, like tday. These days are rare though.|
