the seachem product is good.

Total Nitrogen 0.28%
Available Phosphate 0.17%
Soluble Potash 0.16%
Calcium 14.9%
Magnesium 0.06%
Sulfur 12.2%
Boron 0.029%
Chlorine 0.55%
Cobalt 0.001%
Copper 0.001%
Iron 2.2%
Manganese 0.23%
Molybdenum 0.0009%
Sodium 0.14%
Zinc 0.0024%

But its just cheaper with places like Rootmed or BobsTropical

It is a mix of three products. It is more concentrated than seachems.

You know the only adbvantage seachem has over the other guys is the color of the root tabs! If rootmedic would just come out with a nice black root tab that i didn't have to worry about surfacing. I would buy all of my root tabs through you Justin!

We're working on them. THe problem with the 100% clay based ones is they are 90% filler. We're looking at making a version of iron intense that is black clay based in a gel cap, as well as trying to get the membrane produced in black or even dyed black.

I am not interested in making extruded clay root tabs, so that isn't an option for us right now.
