I definitely need to use something soon because I am afraid those couple of tiny flies will soon multiply and populate the entire area where the flowers are - in the living room. That is a major no-no.
I never laugh at anyone except myself especially when I do something I have never done before. It is inexpensive in a spritzer pump (like Windex) all you do is saturate the soil. But be sure to check the leaves before you go to make sure the leaves are not diseased. Home Depo or Loewes or a nursery Will have it.

Waow...over a decade old...! I cannot believe a plant in a pot can go so long!! Nice.

So I suppose she re-potted them many times over during all those years, right...?
