Question Are Osmocote Plus sold in Caps already?

I plan to go to HD in a while and was curious if they come in Gel Caps already? Ive done some searching and have read some threads and im getting mix readings w/caps?

Do they come with or do I need to buy the 0-000 size seperate?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you have to buy the 00 caps separately.

You can buy Osmocote-filled gelcaps from members here if you want, but they just went ahead and do what I do - buy some osmocote, buy some gelcaps ($5 will get you a few hundred on Amazon), and fill.

Thought so but was not sure... Thanks

This brings up a Q... Would it help if I were to poke a needle size hole in each capsule? Im thinking it would help not want to float and get a start on its use. Any feedback on this ?

The caps dissolve quickly. To keep them from floating, just use tweezers and jam them into the substrate. Maybe a needle hole would help, but I've never had them pop up out of the substrate before.
