Hi Thanks for your reply. I also think that fungal knats are a big contender in the area of pollination for Aspi's. My Aspi's have never grown in a garden, or seen a slug or snail. They have always been house plants. Fungal knats are a constant souce of irritation for me concerning Aspi's. They do like damp conditions in the plant's compost. So keeping the Aspi's as dry as possible is an ongoing theme for me. Two of my plants produced flowers two winters ago. Fungal knats can make the roots mushy and die off. I find that keeping the plants separate from one another in the house can help with the knat problem. Best wishes Beryl
Ive just bought an Aspidistra from a local garden centre who had it amongst their houseplants. I bought it to add a bit of evergreen to my depleted garden but am now worried that, as it has probably been indoors its whole life, it may not take too kindly to being put outside at this time of the year. Anyone have any thoughts?
