1. Do I use dirt or water? I already have a starter culture of algae in a jar lid in dirt (I harvested from some of my over-watered pots
) so 2. how do I transfer to water if I use water? 3. Should I use water in some and dirt in others? 4. Which grows it faster? 5. If dirt, yard dirt or potting mix? Before you ask,
, I am just growing algae for fun, plus once they die they can be added to plants as fertilizer, even though dead algae stink of sewers to high heaven
. 6. Do algae like stagnant water? They didn't grow in my hydro system, which is just a box of water with floating plant trays in it, no circulation. 7. How do I remove a single alga? 8. Is it possible to remove a single alga? 9. Should I add fertilizer to the dirt/water? I know this is a lot of questions so no one member has to answer them all, just answer as many as you want. I have numbered them for convenient answering.
