Grape Caulerpa Algae

Does anyone have a picture of what Caulerpa looks like when it has or is in the process of going sexual? I have looked around the internet and so far I haven't been able to find any actual pics. I suspect mine is in the process of going sexual.... 8O


Thanks....

Bill

It starts to turn pale/white. Not sure if I can find a picture. It does, however, usually happen quite quickly.

The bulbs are where it gets the name "grape." It will turn white when it goes sexual.

Since I have had the stuff the new growth has been white and then turns to green, but recently the green grapes and the leaves on the razor caulerpa have been turning a transparent white...

Transparent white is what to look for. The new opaque white tips are new growth. Older growth that suddenly turns clear or white needs to be removed immediately.
