When to dose ferts the 1st time


After I get my plants in my tank do I use ferts right away? Or do I wait a couple weeks and let them settle in first?

My instinct would say right away so they have all the nutrients they needs to grow roots and really take hold, but I have not the slightest clue what I'm saying so that's just a guess.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.

Plants need ferts. Don't wait a few weeks to give it to them.

That feeling of your guess being right.
