Brown Algae vs Root Rot
Brown Algae vs Root Rot Help I was recently (6 days ago) given Purple Heart, aka Purple Queen, cuttings to root & pot. I left the them in water until they rooted, and they now have a brown algae all over the ends that were submerged. I removed them from water, rubbed off the algae and rinsed the ends. I don't see anything I recognise as a root, unless they are a thicker root than I'm used to seeing on a young plant? Is it ok to place them in a pot with soil? Should I dip rinse them with a hydrogen peroxide mixture first? Should I dip them in a rooting hormone? Is this considered root rot? Could it potentially spread to my other houseplants? Thank you in advance for your help.
