Plant Tips and Tricks

Can you really catch more flies with honey than with vinegar?

A common problem with office plants is an infestation of Fungus gnats. Fungus gnats are small, dark-colored flies that jump and fly across the office plant potting soil surface. Studies show that gnats are attracted to vinegar. Fill a jar almost to the top with vinegar, poke several small holes in the lid and then set it out.

Keep Your Office Plants Clean and Bug Free

If your office plants are dusty or you see a few bugs or gnats, try cleaning your plants with a mixture of 6 oz. of rubbing alcohol, 24 oz. of water and 4 drops of ivory soap. Don't use on African violets. Don't clean more than once per week. Don't apply in direct sunlight.
