    Just sharing some interesting things.
    The racemosa I use has some weird habits, the main one, out side of being an amazing nutrient importer, is that it lives on and flourishes after it drops its colour/pigments.
    This means it should starve to death, they need pigments in general and the cyano with in its chloroplast to carry out photosynthesis?
    How the hell this algae lives and grows like this is beyond me!
