What are all these green plants that crop up on my vinyl siding?

Green stains that are located on the vinyl siding occur due to the activities of algae, moss, mold, or mildew, mainly algae. They are naturally occurring stains that tend to happen over time. When your vinyl siding starts turning green, the general appearance becomes diminished.

Put, mildew, and algae both germinate and grow up around areas that are damp as well as organic. Therefore, wood siding, because it is natural, will be vulnerable to the growth of algae. 

Fortunately, vinyl siding that has algae can be washed and cleaned off. During the washing process, the green stain is taken out in addition to all other blemishes and dirt, which might have been developing on the vinyl siding. Therefore, in order to ensure that your vinyl siding gets cleaned to leave an even clean appearance of all things in the home, it is always best to clean off the entire surface instead of the only areas with algae.
