why does moss attract algae?
I googled this question, but found nothing. Algae doesn't grow at all on some plants for me (swords, ferns, wisteria), but thrives on others (HC, hairgrass, four-leaf clovers, rotala indica, MOSS).
So why does moss attract algae so badly? My Taiwan moss is pretty much a scary, unidentifiable mix of hair algae and moss now. Gone for a few days, came home, and it's all there. I already changed the photo-period to 3 hours per day last night, and dosed 2x excel... see if that does the trick. But my question still persists. :P
