worm like pest


I'm growing CPs in the Desert of Tucson, Az

please advise what i could do if i see this in the future and what it is...

thx in advance adnedarn
That is a fungus gnat larvae.
They don't really cause any problems unless you have a big infestation of them. The best thing to do is buy a sundew such as D. binata which will catch the adult flies and reduce the population.
