- Initial fast-growing abilities of bloom-forming species assessed in mono vs mixed cultures.

- A low growth rate recorded in mixed cultures, suggesting possible competitive interactions under specific conditions.

- P. agardhii outcompete C. raciborski at low light intensity and high NO3- source; while C. raciborski outgrow at high NH4+ levels.
