Welcome on Aquascaping Lab Channel in this video tutorial we are talking about planted tank fertilizzation water plants absorbe all nutrients from stem leaves and roots so we must introduce many type of fertilizer to ensure an heatly growth of plants Usually this product are Liquid to dissolve in water powder products placed in the substrate carbon dioxide (CO2) system And a good lighting LIQUID FERTILIZER: is very pupular and practical they usually have all necessary nutrients for water plants these nutrients elements can be divided into macronutrients and micronutrients Macronutrients are : nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur calcium, magnesium, potassium are indispensable elements and must be dissolved in medium-high quantity Micronutrients are: iron, manganese, copper, zinc, cobalt, molybdenum, boron must be dissolved in moderate quantity these are generally used for red plants (difficult maintenance) be careful because an overdose will cause the presence of algae finally we suggest to use this type of product because tap water is poor of the right nutrients but remember that each plant has its own characteristics and their needs so each plants absorbs not all elements so everything that is not absorbed, will serve to increase the growth of algae. POWDER FERTILIZER: plant roots grow into the substrate so in necessary to provide all the nutrients the substrate will have the ability to cation exchange then absorb all the essential nutrients from water and slowly release the plants so is better use porous gravel, lateritic sand pumice gravel or crushed volcanic rocks this is generally how positioned a substrate fund First layer to make volume Second layer : composed by substrate fetilizer or powder fertilizer Third layer is composed by porous gravel or sand For convenience there are gravels already fertilized for a more practical use For funds already set up or old then it drains nutrients exist tablets to insert equidistant directly from outside talking aboute “CO2 integration” and “right lighting” we can think of photosynthesis so click these video tutorials if you want to know more aboute “CO2 system” and “Right Lighting” thank you for watching this video write a comment and click on like and subscribe on Aquascaping Lab channel for all news

  1. salve, ho fatto un acquario tempo fa, con uno strato fertile sotto e un altro strato di sabbia per far si che non galleggi la sabbia come mi avevano suggerito, e in questo nanocube da 16L ho messo due rocce un tronco e delle Pogostemon helferi.. dopo un po di mesi mi sono ritrovato con manco una pianta perche una dopo l'altra tornavano in superficie senza radici.. uso anche il fertilizzante liquido ma niente nonostante questo le piantine hanno deciso di fare cosi.. perche? è successo per motivi di scarsa illuminazione o per la scarsa fertilizzazzione? aiuto

  2. Spett.Aquascaping Lab ho una vasca da 300 litri con varie piante vere, da un po di tempo noto delle lumache mi dicono che sono infestanti.Cosa mi consigliate, esiste un prodotto per eliminarle??Vi ringrazio anticipatamente.
