Hey, I started supplementing the Dupla with Flourish a few months
ago, myself, and I've had lots of blue-green algae recently. I was
wondering myself whether it was the Flourish or something new
in our city water.
I did leave the Flourish out of the refrigerator for a couple of
days by mistake -- it has a little smell -- maybe I ought to toss it.

I never saw any before, but I just cleaned out several large globs of
the stuff and it's still all in wy Myriophylum.
Can Flourish rot? According to the label it's got amino acids.
