Dosing seachem flourish

I've always dosed the day after a water change because I was told when you use prime on the water change it hinders everything useless for 24hrs. Is this really true? Do any of you use flourish right after a water change?

I am not sure of the interaction between the various products in the Flourish product line and dechlorinator.

I have often dosed on the day of the water change by dissolving the ferts in the container where I am preparing the new water (including dechlor). I am not using a dechlor or other water treatment that locks up heavy metals.
But then I am also continuing to dose through the week, alternating N, P, K on every other day, and micros + Fe the other days.
I also have a high CEC substrate.
Between all these dosing strategies, if there is a problem between dechlor and fertilizer I am not seeing it.

Well, it certainly cannot render "everything" useless.

I would ask this on the Seachem forums where their own staff may respond. Should you do so, let us know what they say.

I use Prime also, Sunday is water change day for me if needed.
I dose nothing on water change day.
Never though if it would even matter.

Growing is not that difficult.
