Seachem Flourish Tab

What's with the "Guaranteed Analysis of some components not listed due to state regulations"

Anyone know what's the 411 on this?

Seachem Flourish Tabs are mainly micros lacking NPK and better options are available even right here on TPT from other members.
sorry but can't answer your question as I quit using the product.

It's available on their web: http://www.seachem.com/Products/prod...urishTabs.html

Not sure why "state regulations" forbid the listing. Sometimes manufacturers can't name things in a certain way, because in order to do so they have to get special permits or fulfill certain requirements. I remember Seachem had to change the wording for some of their "fertilizers" to "plant supplements". Not sure though.

The missing elements are on this table:
http://www.seachem.com/support/Flour..._Deficency.pdf
per this quote:
Quote:
View a chart of Flourish Tabs™ constituents and signs of their deficiency.
I assume it relates to the metals at the bottom. And the state of California, I'm sure.
Seachem Flourish says this too:
http://www.seachem.com/Products/prod.../Flourish.html

They also say this on their potassium page:
Quote:
Elemental potassium is present at a concentration of 50,000 ppm (e.g 5%). Archaic fertilizer laws require us to list potassium in terms of equivalence to a material that is not present (K2O) rather than the more scientificaly sound method of simple elemental equivalence.
It seems as though they aren't fond of many of the laws applicable to us.... not that I disagree.


I think this is similar to their labeling for Flourish Excel. By calling their product Aqueous solution of polycycloglutaracetal they are able to get around the labeling and restrictions regarding glutaraldehyde. I do not for a second believe that it is anything more than glutaraldehyde.

I think the part that makes it harder for Seachem is that they are based in GA. Some of the southern states have some peculiar laws regarding fertilizer and some large fertilizer companies have stopped producing their products inside of these states, though the one that I remember off hand was in Alabama.
