OverStocked This will kill the plant. It isn't enough to "start" burning it. It WILL burn it.

Guaranteed. Waste of fertilizer and waste of a good plant....

I've tested these ferts in just about every quantity possible. This is about 100x the most extreme level you can keep plants alive in.

Dude, maybe 1/2 teaspoon for that plant not a Cup. Looks like the Rhizome is buried, might want to pull that Anubias up a little, just get the roots in the dirt.

My osmocote Sub.

After filling I have some left over osmocote. I end up using it as a top layer substrate.

I want to fill the 4x4 up with osmocote but I have just enought to do 1-1 1/2 inch of osmocote so I end up using soil for the bottom.

With the nutrients the nana will root into the osmocote Im doing this for growing, not for showing. Once the plant grow to the size I want I will gel it down to wood or rock.
