DSM water level and humidity

Two weeks into my dwarf hairgrass DSM. It's covered with saran wrap and misted every other day. Some green algae fuzz is growing. Can I spray it with hydrogen peroxide solution? How should I treat it? I have organic dirt capped with black blasting sand

Yes. Peroxide. It might actually be mild if you are only misting every other day. Also - try misting a few times a day and opeNing the tank for gas exchange once or twice daily. I can't tell from the picture but the water level should be below the surface of the substrate. You shouldn't see standing water at the substrate level. Hope this helps.
