Hi Everyone,

I got a Phal in bloom (Two spikes) as a present 10 days ago. It only has two flowers that bloomed and the rest are on their way bloom hopefully(blooms are developing at different stages).

The problem is that I always go home in the evening and I find gnats on top of the medium. I sprayed twice the top of the medium with alcohol but of course the problem persists because the source is probablly deep inside the medium. It is potted in Peat. Well, this is the first Orchid that I have that is potted in this medium. One day I also noticed there was some sort of web.

So, I wanted to know what is the best course of action for me to take since i also don't want the gnats moving to my other Orchids. I thought of repotting in cocnut husk(pre-washed), but there is a possibility that the flowers would blast. I forgot to mention that one bud already blasted two days ago.

I would appreciate any advice on what to do..

Thanks

Fadi
