    Don't even think it won't be back. I have algae in many pots, and leave it alone unless it becomes overbearing. It will cover seedlings
    completely, smothering them out, but big plants it won't do much to. Its just ugly.

    Big Mouth, Most mosses in a pot or a terrarium start out looking like cotton fuzz growing in the pot/terrarium. It will cover many plants and kill seedlings too, but I felt you need to know about this. After it gets to a certain size (spread) the green growth starts, and a healthy carpet of moss appears. It will also "take out" a lot of young seedlings and smaller plants, smothering them to death. It isn't too hard to tell the difference between algae, and common moss growth. Just an FYI.

    How are you getting algae; they need nutrients to grow?
