Aquarium Plant Fertilizer Solution Recipes


Aquarium Plant Fertilizer Solution Recipes


MACRO

N, P, K

Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium - the macronutrients.

  • 500 ml of distilled water
  • 61 g (10.69 teaspoons, 3.63 tablespoons) Potassium nitrate (KNO3)
  • 5.2 g (1 teaspoons) Potassium monophosphate (KP04)
  • 10.8 g (2 teaspoons) Magnesium sulphate (MgSO4)
  • 1.8 g (0.3 or 1/3 teaspoon) Potassium sulphate (KSO4)

3 times a week add 10 ml for a 20 gallon tank. Or 1-2 ml daily. Or 15 ml twice a week. This will add 30 ppm nitrate a week to a tank with corresponding correct proportions for the other macronutrtients.


FE-TRACE

FE + Trace

Iron and trace elements.

  • Use 71 grams (2.5 T) of Plantex CSM+B
  • one liter of distilled water.
Use 1 cc per 2 gal to raise Fe 5.0 ppm. Ie 20 gal tank gets 10cc (two capfuls)

Dose daily, biweekly or weekly depending on bioload
