Best source of IRON?

What is the best source of iron for the plants?

Which one is better between Chelated Iron 10% and Flourish Iron in term of plant growing efficiency?

There are different kinds of chelated iron, and seachem is better. But you would probably be better off adding extra flourish comprehensive instead of flourish iron.

Well, I can tell you which is cheaper lol. To my knowledge there is no difference. The guaranteed analysis of Seachem's product is 1% and it's derived from ferrous gluaconate. For what you would pay for one bottle of Flourish Iron you could buy a supply of 10% that would last years.
