ID please
Found this stuff growing under a few of my java fern leaves. I am guessing it is a type of algae. Sorry about the blurry pics :/

This picture shows what it looks like attached to the plant.
Plus, as you can see on the left-most leaf, the java fern does have a bit of black algae markings on it. Is that something I should worry about as well?

And this is what it looked like when i plucked it off, it has a reddish tint to it

Looks like a baby java fern! They do spawn from their leaves sometimes :)

They will grow plantlets on the leaves that you can pluck off and plant.

lol really!?
I didnt expect that at all, i thought for sure it was an algae of some sort.
Well that sucks that I threw 4 of them away, but hey they only took about 2 days to form.

Thanks for the help guys!
