Handling Algae and Other Stuff.
    #3082317 - 09/02/04 12:55 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Two problems:

Firstly my Peyote seedlings are under attack from algae on the soil surface.

The problem is the seedlings are too small to risk moving (4 weeks) but the amount of algae forming on the soil is increasing. It's not even receiving direct light.

Has anyone had any experience dealing with algae contamination?

Secondly I have an unknown Euphorbia which is starting to develop yellow patches, they are definetly subdermal so not a pest/disease. It appears as though the chlorophyl has been removed from part of the stem. Can excessive light cause this? Or again, any ideas?

Well, I use spray with a 10% of vinegar to control the growth algae in the soil surface. the soil with high organic content is prone to the growth of algae.

There's algae all over the soil of some of my pachanoi seedlings, it doesn't look nice, but it doesn't seem to do any harm. It would probably be less of a problem if it did get stronger light, and if you let the surface dry out more. There are also some little black bugs which seem to be feeding on the algae. I've created a whole little ecosystem :laugh:.
Moving young seedlings isn't much of a problem. Just move a chunk of soil with them, so you don't disturb the roots. I do it all the time, and have never lost one.
