No different further up the coast, simply hot, dry and windy.

Some of the indoor Ficus at work got infested with Fungus gnats - So I put them outside - I put them in the shade but the arvo sun caught the edge leaves of one of them - turned them brown with in a couple of arvo sessions.

Also - heres some free tips for fungus gnat infestation.

Bunnings staff reckon there are very hard to get rid of.

- you can try fully submerging the pots for a day and drowning them, but thats not going to stop them coming back.

- you can put soapy water in a spray bottle and spray that over the dirt - they dont like the soap

- also dont over water coz they love moist soil

- water the roots as opposed to the surface layer because they nest in the top inch of potting mix and they need that to be moist-ish

- yellow bug attracting sticky pads you hang off the tree - this catches the adult but not all of them

I've tried all these methods and they always come back

The last method I saw, was to cover the potting soil in a couple of inches of coarse sand - this forms a physical barrier that the gnats find difficult to burrow through. - Of course Bunnings had run out of the big bags of coarse sand, so I had to get paver sand - but we'll see how that goes

Yeah the species I'm chasing at the moment have everything to do with the availability of shade and not so much what I'd rather be doing

Yeah when ever the City cops a heat wave - it always seems to be about 10 degrees cooler on the Mornington Peninsula - So perfection isnt all that far away

I believe it's to do with water requiring a lot of energy to change temperature, which results in more stable temperatures adjacent to large bodies of water

Yeah that makes more sense -

I know guys with Green houses in cold climates use large water filled, black barrels, to capture the warm of the sun during the day and keep the green house warm over night.

Thanks for the tip. Im about to build a temporary pvc greenhouse structure that i can put over the plants to hopefully up the humidity and trap some temp in over night.
