I live in Okinawa, where the climate is sub-tropical, somewhat like Hawaii or Florida.
The green jelly stuff shown below is fairly common in my neighborhood, and has recently started to appear in my garden. I think it’s disgusting, and I’d like to eradicate it, so I’m trying to learn more about it.
It ranges from bright green to nearly black in color. It has the consistency of jello. I see no roots or any other structure. I notice that it tends to spring up after heavy rains.
My questions are:
- What is it called?
- How does it reproduce?
- How can I prevent its insurgence?
