Plant Pack™: Fundamentals is an excellent pack for
beginning aquatic gardeners. It contains Flourish®, Flourish Iron™,
Flourish® is a growth stimulator for aquarium plant
stems and leaves. It contains a broad spectrum of essential trace
elements, vitamins, and amino acids. Flourish® is rich in gluconate
iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, inositol, choline B12, biotin, and other factors that have been determined to be beneficial to aquatic plants.
Flourish Iron™ is a companion product to Flourish® and Flourish Tabs™. It is a complexed ferrous (Fe+2)
iron product which contains 10,000 mg/L of iron and is ideal for iron
maintenance in the natural planted aquarium. Plants can utilize both
ferric (Fe+3) and ferrous (Fe+2) iron, although they prefer ferrous iron when available.
Flourish Excel™ is a simple source of readily
available organic carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is
typically obtained from CO2, but, may also be obtained via
relatively simple organic compounds (such as photosynthetic
intermediates). Since both processes occur simultaneously one can derive
a substantial benefit with the use of Flourish Excel™ either alone or
in conjunction with CO2 injection.
