trace/micro

Hi Guys!


I'm using EI method but unfortunately unable to get Microplex or Csm+b where I am. I'm currently using Sera florena. Recommended dosage are 20ml once weekly but I'm dosing 10ml 3 times per week. Am I over dosing? any of you using other trace like seachem or jbl or sera with EI method as well?


Thanks in advance

forgot to mention cant make my own where I am which is China since I cant read chinese

Unless you are seeing a specific deficiency in your plants, I see no reason to dose traces 3/week.
If you want to switch brands, I see Seachem Flourish mentioned a lot on the forum.

Seachems Flourish comprehensive at three times a week day after water changes and macros might fit the bill?

I use Flourish alot with EI. It has a broader breadth of micros than CSM+B if you were using that alone.

if is Chinese I'm fine with it since I know seachem flourish back of my head but unfortunately nobody sells seachem flourish which is extremely odd because they got everything else from seachem and aquavitro lol

Thanks but not able to find seachem flourish

ok guys thanks for the help but I think with your suggestions ive determined to use aquavitro envy instead since I can use with EI method like houseofcards mention. Envy is basically flourish which I didn't know. I was doing some online research just now and found the information I need.

Again thank you fellas!! really appreciate the advices!
