Tired of overpaying for root tabs? Want your plants to truly flourish? Here's your answer!
I make my own fertilizer tabs for rooted aquarium plants. These tabs will stimulate root growth and in turn, plant growth as well. Over the years, I've realized that the tabs that you buy at the pet store are overpriced and require you to frequently replenish. This adds up to a lot of time and money. My tabs will last 4-5 months in your tank, compared to 1-3 months for the brand names. It's a great value that will save you lots of money in the long run. Your plants will thank you.
Here's how to use them:
Simply insert one root tab in the gravel for every 12–15 cm (5–6 in.) radius. The gel case containing the fertilizers will safely dissolve, allowing the slow-release balls to evenly distribute in the gravel. A standard 10 gallon aquarium requires 6 tabs, and so forth. Distribute the tablets evenly throughout the gravel bed. Push each tablet midway into the gravel bed. Make sure that it is covered with gravel. Add new tablets once every four to five months for optimal plant growth.

In my opinion these are better than API Root Tabs or SeaChem Flourish Root Tabs. They last longer and are coated for time release. API Root Tabs are $10.99 (+tax)/box of 10 and SeaChem Flourish Root Tabs are $11.99 (+tax)/box of 10
