Stopping algea

Discussion in 'Advanced Growing Techniques' started by Minty Freshness, Mar 21, 2006.

  1. If i change my 3 gallons of water in my bubbling pot once a week and clean it out really good before i add more water and nutrients what is the likelyhood that algea would grow quickly in a week?
  2. You'll be fine. One thing you may want to try. Go to the grow shop or industrial supply store and buy some "panda film". Panda film is white on one side, and black on the other and it blocks light really well. It comes in 10' X100ft rolls and you can normally buy it for $1.50/ft It's used for sectioning areas of green houses, and is very effective.

    Keep your container out of light as much as you can and make sure your water doesnt get too warm and you'll be alright.
  3. Light is getting to your solution which is why algae is forming... has to be lightproof!
  4. algea is not getting in there by the way
  5. thanks renegade
