    It does not cost much to try. I would caution, however, one way to check for gnats is to lay a freshly cut potato on top of the growing mix. The larvae are attracted to the potato so when you flip the potato over in a couple of days you'd see them congregating.

        Or you can make sand on bottom of pot and sand on top then no gnat?

          Guys I tried this but the resulting tree was very prostrate and when it set figs they were very starchy dense not sweet and weighed about a pound a piece!!!
