I've read previous posts where users ask on ways to remove or mollify the growth of algae and mold within plant water trays.
However, I don't know, are Algae harmful to Carnivorous plants? I would think that since some of these plants (like the South/North Carolina native Venus Fly Traps) grow are in standing water for periods of time, they are natively familiar with Algae.
I've only read on the harmful effects algae (specifically, cyanobacteria in blue-green algae) have on humans. However, I haven't found any information on whether algae is bad for plants.
Thoughts? Is algae harmful to the plant, or is it just harmful to the eyes?
