Algae

I am growing in S-H in opaque plastic pots. Some plants have developed algae. I have treated with Phyton 27, Physan 20, and hydrogen peroxide to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of the algae?

Drop the containers into a ceramic pot or vase. If the algae is not getting the light it will die.
