Okay, so, the green slime that builds up on the soil surface is because of minerals found in the water, non?
Well i called EWEB (Eugene Water and Electric Board) and found out that the total PPM of their water supply is 54 PPM, which is really good. On top of that, i have been using an RO filter for nearly 2 weeks now.
The seeds i got from a friend of mine have only gone through one rain shower, and i have kept them watered with water from only the RO filter.
It STILL manages to get that green slime all over the surface... but its not so much slime as it is just a green coloration.
On top of that, some of my new plants, which i recently potted, are also getting green on their soil surfaces.
Is there no getting away from this stuff?!
