    Hey I just recieved this 50 liters bag of biocanna terra plus, it had some fungus gnats in it, i have treated with beneficial nematodes which usually works.

    But thats when i found this "egg" kind of thing lying in the surface of the soil,
    the soil is currently in two 25 liters containers, alone in a different tent than my plants with a LED lamp trying to get the nematodes etc started before i introduce any plants to the medium .

    What size is this thing. Fungus gnats donhave s similar looking thing. You will also find them on your stems falling towards the soil. But sometimes they look like mini snails.

    That was some fertilizer Lol. Those white dots could be knots or a pest I can't really tell. If it is white bulbous tissue its possibly fungal knots. If its suckered to the stem you have some sort of bug.

    Damn, I must say my "paranoia" have been kinda granted by the canna bio terra plus soil, which is to date the worst soil i have ever had lol.
    Well it grows decent but so far 4/4 batches that ive had of that stuff was full of fungus gnats, and i see people generally saying the same thing on other forums so .. yea lol.

    I like Canna for their nutrients, but they really need to step their game up with that soil .

    Think it could be posible that the soil could be contaminated with other nasty stuff than fungus gnats?

    saw one spider looking critter crawling in the tent didnt look like the other flys from when the fungus gnat hatch etc.

    They will travel from my small "soil" tent to my flower tent i guess if they are like spidermites, that would be pretty sad :(

    Anyone have suggestions for what i should do?

    Most organic style soils may already have soil mites/fungus gnats ect its just the nature of organic soil & It doesn't help that the dirt is usually stored in a warehouse with just about every good/bad critter you could imagine.

    That being said, you cant blame canna/fox farms/dr.earth ect for having critters in "organic" soil.

    You'll just have to kill them off first then maintain good grower habbits to prevent them like the rest of us do. (clean room/good watering habbits/healthy plants)

    When I first read the title, I saw" unidentified orgasms in my soil".. lol

    You can see my confusion. ;)

    It's an alien death pod. It's hatched if it's empty. Too bad. Really. Don't agonize it, there is nothing you can do.

    Oke interresting i come from long time with hydro but nothing organic. ever.

    So yea this soil is way different and i know its about making it all interact together in a big harmony hah :) ..
    I have been using nematodes to deal with the gnats so far, and the last batch i treated like that seemed to stop the gnats, so i guess i will just have to think about a way to deal with potential mites.

    If im going to grow organic i might aswell do it fully and ditch the bottles from canna and just make a strong soil is my conclusion during my first grow here :P
