Fert Capsules used on Riparium plants?


Not sure where to ask this, and thought this would be as good a place as any. I'm adding some riparium plants to my tank soon, they have their own planter that sits on the inside of the tank just underneath the water surface.

They are supposed to have their own gravel, which comes with the package. So I was wondering if I could put fertilizer capsules inside of that gravel or would it leak out into the water column?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think rootabs will always find ways to leak out into water column and I don't think there is a problem with that.
