Aquatic plants use nitrogen and phosphorous as well as potassium, iron, magnesium, manganese and other minerals to grow. Most of the nitrogen and phosphorus comes from fish food and waste, however, minerals must be added to the aquarium on a regular basis.
Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK) are the three main macro nutrients required by plants and can often become the limiting factor to growth in a flourishing system. Plant Pack Enhancer: NPK combines Flourish Nitrogen™, Flourish Phosphorus™, and Flourish Potassium™ in one pack.
Equilibrium™ is specifically designed to establish the ideal mineral content for the planted aquarium. Equilibrium™ contains no sodium or chloride (which can be detrimental to a planted aquarium at elevated levels). Equilibrium™ is ideally suited for use with RO (reverse osmosis) or DI (deionized) water or any mineral deficient water. Equilibrium™ raises the essential mineral/electrolyte content (General Hardness) of the water to balance with and promote stability of the carbonate hardness.
Flourish® is a comprehensive plant supplement for the natural freshwater aquarium. It contains a rich assortment of important micro elements, trace elements and other nutrients. These include calcium, magnesium, iron and other important elements that have been shown to be beneficial to aquatic plants
Flourish Advance™ is an all-natural, biologic growth enhancer for aquatic plants. Its advanced formula contains phytohormones, minerals, and nutrients that dramatically stimulate the growth of both roots and shoots in aquatic plants.
Flourish Excel™ is a source of bioavailable organic carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is typically obtained from CO2, but, may also be derived from simple organic compounds (such as photosynthetic intermediates). The use of either CO2 injection or Flourish Excel™ does not necessarily negate the use of the other. Because the processes of producing photosynthetic intermediates and building onto them occur simultaneously, one can derive a substantial benefit with the use of Flour
Iron is immobile in plants. This means that plants cannot divert iron from older leaves to new ones. Therefore, deficiency symptoms appear first on new or young leaves. Because plants use iron to produce chlorophyll, a lack of iron results in chlorosis, or yellowing, of the younger leaves. Stems may also appear short and slender. If the deficiency is severe and prolonged, each new leaf emerges lighter in color than the preceding leaf.
Flourish Tabs™ are growth stimulating tablets for plant roots. They contain essential trace elements, amino acids, and vitamins. They are rich in iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium, potassium, inositol, choline B12, biotin, and other factors that have been determined to be beneficial to aquatic plant roots. They contain no phosphate or nitrate that would promote algae proliferation.
Plant Pack™: Fundamentals is an excellent pack for beginning aquatic gardeners. It contains Flourish®, Flourish Iron™, Flourish Excel™.
Ad Nitrogen is one of the main three macro nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium: NPK) required by plants and can often become the limiting factor to growth in a flourishing system. Flourish Nitrogen™ is a concentrated (15,000 mg/L) blend of nitrogen sources. It provides nitrogen in both the nitrate form and the plant–preferred ammonium form. d a description about this item
Flourish Potassium™ contains 50,000 mg/L of potassium suitable for the natural planted aquarium. Potassium is one of several elements that are vitally important to maintaining a vigorous level of growth in a planted aquarium. Potassium can become depleted in a rapidly growing system or when the source water has a low mineral content.
Phosphorus is one of the main three macro nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium: NPK) required by plants and can often become the limiting factor to growth in a flourishing system. Flourish Phosphorus™ is a safe solution (4,500 mg/L phosphate) of potassium phosphate that takes the guess work out of phosphate dosing.
Besides the conditions meeting lighting, CO2 and water quality to grow aquatic plants, the last required know-how is to add liquid fertilizers. Essential nutrients for aquatic plants are the three major nutrients (nitrogen, potassium, iron) and also, some microelements, required even in small amounts, such as iron, magnesium, and calcium. It is important for aquatic plants to be nourished just the right amount in order to grow healthy without algae outbreaks.
Brighty K is a liquid fertilizer supplying potassium, which tends to be in short supply in the planted aquarium. It is also used for chlorine neutralization at a regular water change.
Green Brighty Iron is a liquid fertilizer supplying iron to planted aquarium. Vigorously growing aquatic plants particularly require plenty of iron and if iron is insufficient, the growth and pigment synthesis of aquatic plants is affected. Daily application to the aquarium improves these problems and promotes healthy growth of aquatic plants.
Green Brighty Mineral is a liquid fertilizer supplying trace elements to planted aquarium. Insufficient trace elements affects the formation of new buds and pigment synthesis of aquatic plants, and can cause poor leaf color and poor plant growth. Daily application to the aquarium improves these problems and promotes healthy growth of aquatic plants.
Green Brighty Neutral K is a liquid fertilizer supplying potassium to planted aquarium. When potassium is insufficient, the photosynthesis activity and growth of aquatic plants are affected and this can cause yellowing and bleaching of leaves as well as lower resistance to algae. Daily application to the aquarium improves these problems and promotes healthy growth of aquatic plants.
Green Brighty Nitrogen is a liquid fertilizer supplying nitrogen to planted aquarium. Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for plant growth and insufficient nitrogen can cause poor growth of aquatic plants. Daily application helps enhance leaf colors and promotes plant growth.
STEP 1 contains trace elements in a good balance and promotes the new leaf growth at initial stage. We recommend STEP 1 for initial stage to the 3rd month after the setup
STEP 2 contains more iron ingredient, vital for the plant growth period. It is recommended for the period from the 3rd month to 1 year after the set-up
STEP 3 contains trace elements with iron and potassium, which helps the root growth. We recommend STEP 3 for the layout of 1 year or older
Iron Bottom is a stick of nutrients with balanced formula of trace elements and coated iron. It is recommended for the growth of Echinodorus and Cryptocoryne, which mainly absorb nutrients from the roots
