idiot check please

I am new to hydroponics so if somebody would do the kindness of keeping me on track it's be appreciated....

I had some sprouts that I began feeding nutrient solution while waiting for other seeds to germinate. Well after a week, I decide to move them to the system.

In that time the grodan develop a green moss on top and I am unsure if this will hurt the system. TIA!

RE: idiot check please

The green stuff is probably algae. Algae shouldn't hurt your plants, but it may indicate you're keeping the grodan too moist. Not sure about your system but cut back on watering (if possible) and cover the top of the pot with a bit of black plastic. without light, the algae will not grow.

RE: idiot check please

I agree the algae is not a huge deal. They sell snap-on net pot covers if you don't want to make your own.
