Answer: When starting seeds, it's important to use sterile media. I've had good success with Peter's potting soil. The presence of green algae or mold suggests a non-sterile potting media and maybe too much water. You can try opening the lid for a short time each day to increase ventilation. I would wait and see if the presence of this algae affects the germinating seedling. It may not!
