Gnats on Houseplants

The first thing I do is remove the soil from the plant and wash the roots very well with dishsoap and water. I wipe down the leaves as well with same solution, but make sure all soap is rinsed off. Get some new soil and repot your plant.


Normally I like to do this outdoors to all my plants, because if one is infested, all are. Just leave the used soil in your garden or spread on your lawn. No need to toss it when it can be put to use in your outdoor garden.
