Re: [APD] leaves dusty
Thanks Raj and Regis,
I think I'm having bit of all the algae specified in the link except
the hair and water algae. From the description looks like the dust I'm
talking about is the diatoms.I had accidentally overfed and that would
have caused this.
The cure mentioned is to leave it to settle. Any other experience suggestion?
Plant growth doesn't seem to be rapid but one specific plant grows
faster than others.

>>I have heard (and seen) calcium deposits on the leaves of rapidly growing plants. The plants abstract their needed carbon from dissolved calcium and magnesium carbonate, leaving behind the calcium and magnesium mineral deposits. This is a typical mechanism for valesnaria but I am not too sure this would affect the more slowly growing moss.
