Daily chapter excerpt:

Females are attracted to the stench of rotting vegetableExample of an Adult Sciarid Fly (aka Fungus Gnat or Fly) matter, including damp, warm, peat compost, particularly if algae is growing on it. The eggs are laid on the upper layer of the soil, and despite adults having a short lifespan, one female can produce between 100-300 eggs a week. The maggots hatch and eat the rotting vegetable matter and sometimes seedlings and cuttings. The entire cycle lasts about 4 weeks at 20°C and sciarids can infest grow rooms at any time of the year.
