you can either remove the plants then repot them in new clean soil,
you can remove the plants from the old soil, cook** the old soil the replace the plants back in
or cook the soil before every planting them in,
you can also use tweezters and do it by hand or buy fungicides

I used cinnamon and it worked great.
all it took is sprinkling a bit on the aglee and after just a few days it was nearly gone.

I'm sorry for the late reply.I'm on the final this week
Btw I posted the image about the algae issue
I already repotted it
but some algae still clinging to the drosera
I hope the picture is clear enough

since the pic seems too big, I'll just give the link to the image ... 2481_n.jpg

ok it's a little OOT but this is the different spatulata than the previous image
the problem with this spatulata is it doesn't produce a lot of dew/goo

I notice that only the new leaves that produce dew but it's not much while the old leaves tend to not dewing and the tentacles that usually hold the dew turns black

I also notice that after each feeding the leaf don't produce dew anymore

any idea what's happening with my spatulata?

here's the image ... 0015_n.jpg

I've put silica around the plant and soil that the plant is in, and have had success with controling it. I'll post a pick later today, it's 1:40 am so I have to sleep :lol: ...... |Jimbok3 fainted, will you use the next pokemon?|
