So my drosera capensis is really loving its new home and pot! And I've noticed that the peat moss started getting a green color as well? As far as I knew the moss is dead? Well what is this then? Mold? Or is it a rebirth of the peat moss?ImageImage

Algae. Harmless. Unless you have seedlings. Then it might be a problem

Hmmm okay...so as long as the seedlings are not really that small anymore, they'll be okay? And also are there NO other threats caused by this algae?
