Osmcate plus root tabs

Hey, do osmcate plus root tabs dissolve in your substrate or do they stay in granule form even after they have been exhausted???
Thanks.

I believe that the gel cap dissolves and they do in fact stay in granule form. I also believe they will float to the surface if disturbed out of the substrate. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Mine don't float but they do rest on top of the substrate. They turn a yellowish whitish color when exhausted.
