Having issues getting rid of fungus gnats in the soil of my fiddle leaf fig. Can anyone help?
Hi Jessica, welcome to Greg!

What have you tried?

Ideally:
Pour hydrogen peroxide in the soil to kill larvae (you can do it straight or 4 parts water to 1 part HP)
Let the plant dry out
Bottom water the plant so the top stays dry
Add sticky traps
If they are really stubborn, you can repot.
I tried the peroxide and the traps but not watering from the bottom. I’ll give that a try.
