My osmocote Sub.
 
2 Attachment(s)
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.

I think you might kill that plant..

That's an extreme amount of fertilizer. Definitely enough to start burning the plant.

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.

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.
