Root Tab Recommendation?

My LFS suggested Tetra Pond Lily Gro - meant for a pond, but I was told to cut it in half. I have no major complaints, my amazon swords are much healthier with it, a crypt seems to be doing well. I'd like to see my jungle (torta) vals do better, as with the dwarf sag ... but, should I use a different type of root tab.

One thing that would prompt me to change root tabs is that when I go to cut the Lily Gro, the tablet crumbles into dust.

I use Osmocote Plus 15-9-12 for my root tabs, and I have no complaints with it. But because Osmocote Plus is now only sold in 50lb bags, many people will buy their Osmocote Plus root tabs from fellow members here.

Just post in the WTB section that you're looking for Osmocote Plus root tabs.
