Algae Harvesting Experiment 1 (Preparing an Algae Culture)


Here we are making a small photobioreactor, which will allow us to harvest larger amounts of algae from small sample cultures.

Jug A contains only water while jug B contains a small amount of liquid fertilizer.

This experiment is based on the one found here:



Container (to hold the algae, one liter minimum)

Small Aquarium Air Pump (to introduce air bubbles)

Liquid Plant Food

A Few mL of Algae
