Product information

Healthy and attractive aquarium plants
Depending on their species aquatic plants absorb a significant portion of their mineral nutrient supply through their roots. The stronger the aquatic plant root, the more nutrients are absorbed this way. In addition the root hairs of aquatic plants have the particular facility to solubilize precipitated iron (Fe3+) and thus supply it to the plants.
Plant genera which absorb a lot of nutrients through the roots:
Echinodorus, Cryptocoryne, Vallisneria, Crinum, Nymphea. Plant genera which absorb their nutrients through the leaves and roots:
Ludwigia, Limnophila, Hygrophila, Alternanthera, Cabomba

FAQ
How often do you insert fertiliser tablets into the substrate?

The fertiliser tablets are inserted into the substrate at the roots of the aquatic plants. Here the nutrients slowly dissolve to be absorbed through the roots. Large, strongly rooting plants (e.g. Echinodorus) need one to two tablets a month. Stem plants need one tablet for 5 to 10 stems. These indications can vary depending on the growth.

Tolle Ergänzung zum flüssigdünger

Meinen Wurzelzehrern wie Cryptocorynen und Echinodorus tue ich mit diesen Tabletten etwas Gutes. Gerade der Echinodorus sieht man sonst schnell an, wenn ihr etwas fehlt. Monatlich nachdüngen klappt mit den Tabletten sehr einfach und ich konnte bisher nie unschöne Reste finden oder schwemme wie bei Tonkugeln in ungünstigen Fällen etwas auf. Top!

Diese Dünge Tabletten sind sehr zu empfehlen.

Diese werden einmal pro Monat an die Wurzeln der Pflanzen gemacht. So nehmen die Pflanzen dann die Nährstoffe auf.

Ich nutze sie in Kombination mit dem Flora Ferropol und habe kräftig und gesunde Pflanzen.
