Algae, Cyanobacteria and Plants - An Hypothesis?

John q

6 Jan 2021
Thanks for the feedback.

I don't think it's as simple as X causes Y.
I get that @jaypeecee but your opening line in this thread was this.
Based on a lot of observations and measurements, I'd like to put forward a suggestion/hypothesis. It is this:

Perhaps cyanobacteria (BGA) and algae need inorganic phosphate (orthophosphate)/PO4
I'll suggest they also need a number of other nutrients to survive, omit any one of them and the cyanobacteria will reced.

Maybe this hypothesis is above my head (which is probable) just trying to understand what exactly it is you're suggesting is the cause of algae/cyanobacteria.
