    I think its a healthy food adv.

    Pumpkin seeds, corn, and I am positive those flowers are used in herbal medicine (correct if wrong)

    Mist sprays are the way to go.

    I was in a massive Conservatory years ago and the misters come on as required its like being in a rain forest in a misty rain and OH boy does the temperature drop fast.

    I have large misters in my Orchids and fernery areas its far better than heavy sprinklers

    If I am correct I think they can be set up to a liquid fert system as well.

    Well, you know my thoughts about algae ;-)
    That said, I expect the plants to get so much out of the water that algae might not grow that much. In my experience, I have less annoying algae in my outside tank (did I ever mentioned it?) than in any of the internal one lighted by artificial LED :)

    I also would be concerned about "algae" if the tank was in direct sunlight not light only.

    Is that tank set well back from glass door/windows, if that is the case there is far less chance of Algae?

    That is a very interesting article.
