prime and nitrogen

If you dose flourish nitrogen after adding prime to the water during a water change, does the prime have any effect on the nitrogen dosed immediately afterwards. Could prime render the nitrogen dose less beneficial?

I don't see why the Prime would have any effect on the nitrogen that is added.

It is a water conditioner, removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia.
Very economical as you only need a small amount.

My understanding is that materials that lock up ammonia leave that ammonia in a form that the nitrifying bacteria can still utilize it, and eventually it becomes nitrate, which plants can use.

The web site also says it detoxifies nitrite and nitrate.

Still, this is one of the most commonly used dechlorinators, and I am sure someone would have noticed a nitrogen deficiency in their plants if Prime caused any problems that way.

Another note: I believe these products have a very short life in the tank, perhaps 24-48 hours, so even if it did do something to some of the nitrogen for a day or so, the plants will still have the rest of the week (assuming weekly water changes) to get all the nitrogen they want.
