algae growing on perlite
    #522639 - 02/03/11 11:13 AM (5 years, 8 months ago)

i have some algae growing on my perlite...i think its due to using fish chemicals to dechlorinate water. what effects will the algae have on my plants??? is there a fix to it?

are you using a hempy bucket method or is it the perlite on your dirt. what nutrients are you using. i don't think the fish chemicals would cause this. algae is caused by water being lit up by light. try a hydrogen peroxide/water spray across the top o d medium and cover the top of it also to keep the light off. i may be wrong. i know im stoned right now.but i was just dealing with crud in my DWC bucket.

Because I've blackened the sun,
And I've bloodied the moon.
I bring gloom when I step in the room,
With the fumes of a tomb.
flowers bloom when Im taken away

Algae on your perlite is due to a light leak in your container.  I had to tape up all my buckets with reflective tape because I kept having problem with it.
