Default Soil tabs in aquasoil

Hello everyone,
I switched my 55 hi tech over to AS Amazonia. Well.... I am not seeing the growth I had with the other substrate. The only difference is NOT using the tabs. Any help would be awesome!,
Thanks,
Tim

High tech set ups need a lot more fertilizer, and might use up whatever ferts were in the soil.

You could use slow release tablets in the substrate, water column ferts or both.

Hello everyone,
I have had the plants in the soil about a month. I have to say I am a little disappointed. I am going to try some osmocote caps and see what happens. I guess it can't hurt. I will let you guys know what happens. I am EI dosing and have been for about two weeks.
Thanks,
Tim
