Flourish Tabs

  • Gravel bed supplement for the planted aquarium
  • Provides micro elements, trace elements and other nutrients
  • Targets root zone

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. Each pack of ten tablets treats a 12 X 30 inch plant bed twice.

Perfect for the beginner, Flourish Tabs™ contain all the nutrients found in Flourish® in a dry, tabular form. These tabs are inserted into the gravel, providing direct, time-released fertilization to the plants’ root zone. Nutrients are slowly made available through enzymatic action of the plants’ roots on the tabs.

Sizes: 10 count, 40 count

Insert one Flourish Tab™ in the gravel for every 10–15 cm (4–6 in.) radius. A standard 10 gallon aquarium requires 6 tabs. Distribute the tablets evenly throughout the gravel bed. Push each tablet midway into the gravel bed. Add new tablets once every three to four months for optimal plant growth. Tabs will not alter pH, but, in very soft or unbuffered water, they have slightly acidic properties similar to peat moss.

A: While Flourite® is a rich source of iron and some minerals such as manganese, it is primarily a porous substrate/gravel base for the planted aquarium. Flourish Tabs™, while not truly necessary for successful plant growth, do supply a broader and more easily utilized source of minerals than does Flourite® alone.

A: As Flourish® and Flourish Tabs™ are similar in function, we generally suggest using one or the other; however, in some situations a greater benefit can be derived from using both. Some plants take in more from their roots, and some take in more from their leaves, so using Flourish and Flourish Tabs™ addresses both needs. Also, if you are one to forget dosing, Flourish Tabs™ are an excellent solution as they are placed in the gravel and provide a time-released source of nutrition.
