What root tabs for Erios and Downoi !!
I'm thinking of using some erios and downoi in my next project.
While digging the old threads about erios, people have advised to use 'Root Tabs'. What kind of root tabs to be used ? Any brand or website ?

Btw- I'll be using powersand special with New Amazonia.
And would I need laterite for downoi ?

Any kind you like. Osmocote Plus, Flourish, Jobe's, homemade clay tabs.

Though, with Aquasoil, you may not need to supplement for quite a while.

I don't think you'd need anything with AS. Even if you have something on top, the erios definitely reach.

I was thinking the same. But many people who used AS have used root tabs.
BTW would it be bad if I use root tabs with AS ? I mean what would happen if I do so !!
