Diana Cover the vase so no light gets in. Just allow light on the leaves.

Plants can tolerate a low dose of hydrogen peroxide, so I would clean the vase once in a while with pure H2O2 (just let it soak with the plant removed, then a quick rinse). You can dip the plant for a short time in diluted H2O2 (length of dipping is shorter if the H2O2 is stronger- but you will have to do some research for exact times and doses). Add H2O2 with every water change. Not much, though. Plants do not like too much. Maximum dose 1.5 ml/gallon.

ValMM Hydrogen peroxide. It'll kill the algae and boost the bamboo's growth. Just put 3 or 4 drops in the water, depending on how much water there is.

ShyShrimpDoc I hear that nerites love algae. Maybe a single snail could be a fairly permanent solution.

Wasserpest If you are talking about algae settling on the glass, these can do wonders...

how to kill algae in a lucky bamboo vase?

Hi i have a large lucky bamboo vase with about 10+ sticks, i leave the vase by the window for some shaded sunlight. So there are algaes all over the place.

What can I use that can kill algae with every water refill?

The beauty is there is no fish or other plants to worry about, just lucky bamboo in a vase. So i am hoping for something simple and strong that will just wipe them out without killing the lucky bamboo.

thanks
