    oh yea, the gnats... i still have a few straglers showing up on the sticky traps, but in general the hoards have subsided
    how much stress can they put on a plant tho? i'm worried about the health of my pregnant phal, the topmost leaf is getting a little yellow in the middle (and she's sooo close to delivering... just think of the poor orphans if she doesn't make it!)
