Why is regular plant fertilization necessary?

Regular plant fertilization is crucial for aquatic plants' healthy growth and development in an aquarium. These fertilizers give plants essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, iron, and other micronutrients. Several aquarium plant fertilizers, such as liquid, substrate-based (root sticks), and powder-based nutrients, are available. Knowing when to start fertilizing your aquarium plants is essential, which we have covered in one of our previous posts. We recommend checking it out before beginning fertilization.

Difference between plant fertilizers

Liquid plant fertilizers: Liquid plant fertilizers are nutrients that can be added directly to the aquarium water. These nutrients are easily and quickly absorbed by the plants, which is particularly useful for plants that absorb nutrients from the water. Due to their rapid uptake, liquid plant fertilizers are dosed daily or weekly.

Substrate-based fertilizers and root sticks: Aquarium plants with robust root systems or fast-growing foreground plants can benefit from nutrients delivered directly to their roots. Substrate-based fertilizers dissolve slowly and release nutrients gradually, providing a long-term plant nutrient supply. These nutrient root tabs typically must be replaced in the substrate every 2-3 months.

Powder-based aquarium fertilizers: These nutrients enable hobbyists to create plant fertilizers using their recipes. Powder-based nutrients are typically mixed with water and then added to the aquarium water.

A combination of liquid and substrate fertilizers or nutrient-rich substrates is often recommended for optimal growth results. This combination ensures that plants can access all the necessary nutrients, regardless of whether they absorb them through their roots or leaves. When choosing fertilizers for aquarium plants, it is essential to consider their specific needs and the aquarium's environmental conditions. In our webshop, you will find various types and brands of plant fertilizers that will help support your plants' healthy growth and development.

Signs of nutrient deficiency in aquarium plants?

Nutrient deficiency in aquarium plants can cause problems such as stunted growth, yellowing leaves, and decay. It is essential to watch out for these signs to ensure the proper health of the plants:

Nitrogen deficiency: can cause the yellowing of older leaves, thinning and brittle leaves, and slow plant growth.
Phosphorus deficiency: can cause dark green or purple leaves, slow plant growth, and leaf loss.
Potassium deficiency: can lead to leaf discoloration, hole formation, and slower plant growth.
Magnesium deficiency: causes yellowing of the leaf center while veins remain green.
Plant iron deficiency: can be identified by new yellow leaves with green veins, which may become thin and die over time.

These are the most common deficiency symptoms observed in aquarium plants. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is essential to replenish the missing nutrients to prevent further damage to the plant. In addition to nutrient replenishment, proper lighting and CO2 dosing may also be necessary to treat deficiency symptoms.
