    I was just wondering if anybody knew of a way to prevent or take care of an algae problem as you can see below.



    This ceph is in the same terrarium as the Drosera but shows no signs of algae and just a little moss. The only difference being that the drosera sits in water and I top water the ceph. And I received the ceph in the soil were-as I mixed up my own soil for the Drosera. They bother appear to be about the same mix, any ideas on why the pot with Drosera has the problem and not the Ceph?

    You don't need an iron chest if you have a sharp brain and a silk tongue.

    Just scrap it off with a spoon. Algae, is caused by minerals/nutrients in the soil but if it is not killing your plants, do not sweat it.

    Another way to rid the algae is to flood the pot, which loosens the algae layer and causes it to float. It is easily removed then.
