Tiny, delicate dark flies that hang around potted plants are fungus gnats. These are adults of larvae that live in the soil, feeding onrganic matter. Cutting down on watering so the soil surface dries between waterings can do some good. Tilling the soil also helps discourage these flies from laying eggs.
