Tropica Plant Nutional+ Capsules vs Flourish Tabs

Has anyone tried Tropica Plant Nutrition+ Plant Capsules? I am currently using Flourish Tabs as a substrate fertilizer, but wondering if these are any good.

Any thoughts on these, or other recommendations. Thanks!

They are good, and very honestly are where the RootMedic design came from. RootMedic ships to Canada, too!

I've been disappointed twice now with Tropica's Capsules. Both time I've bought them and from different retailers the capsules been broken before I even have taken them out of their casing. This makes it quite difficult to place them without losing some of their contents.

FWIW, that is why RootMedic no longer uses the clear, common, cheap gel caps. Most of the other people out there who sell these types of things use clear, cheap, thing gelcaps. RootMedic uses a thicker, white, potassium rich gel cap. Even with just padded envelopes the number of broken capsules in the last six months has been just a few.

Thicker gel caps also allow you more time to get them into the substrate without them falling apart in minutes.
