Seachem Flourish TRACE 4L - Aquarium Plant Fertiliser
Seachem Flourish Trace 4L
Flourish Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated to be necessary for proper plant health and growth. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation. The latter two processes occur more rapidly than with other micronutrients. This makes it important to restore trace elements on a regular basis. Flourish Trace™ may be used alone or in conjunction with Flourish™. Best results are obtained when both are used. Flourish Trace™ is safe for invertebrates such as shrimps.
Sizes: 100mL, 250mL, 500mL, 2L, 4L
Signs of trace element deficiencies
Boron: Death of stem and root apical meristem, leaves twisted, young tissue most affected.
Cobalt: Used for nitrogen fixation, same as nitrogen deficiency signs (stunted growth).
Copper: Young leaves dark green, twisted, wilted, tip remains alive.
Manganese: Chlorosis of young leaves, with smallest veins remaining green, necrosis between veins.
Molybdenum: Chlorosis, twisting, death of young leaves.
Zinc: Reduced leaf size, shortened internodes, chlorosis, spotted leaves, older leaves most affected.
Nickel: lack of germination or seed formation, required for iron absorption.
Why It's Different
By separating the minerals out into a separate product, one can dose it on a more frequent basis than a broad spectrum supplement without worrying about a build up of the more slowly used components.
Use 1 capful (10mL) for every 160L twice a week. When used with Flourish™, dose on alternate days
