Are the FERKA root tabs any good?

I was buying some dry fertilizers from the other day and I can across the Ferka roots tabs. I was considering them until I read the price, $25 for 50 tabs. Are they worth the money? If not, which root tabs are good for the plants and good for the wallet?

I have been using Seachem, but they run over 70 cents a root tab even online. I haven't tried the Ferka stuff yet, but would be willing to try them when my current supply runs out.

Just ordered them about half hour ago. I've been using Seachem. Those seen to stay solid for a while. Tried API and I think one got dug up and the tank turned real cloudy.

I saw these the other day and I was curious also. I look forward to hearing some feedback from someone who has tried them.

I'm not sure I'd know even after using them. Like I said I'm using seachem and can't really say what they've done. I come from a time 30 + years ago when root tabs were about the only fert on the market here.

Ferka Rosetta & Stemma Tabs works very well. I used for a while with very good results before Orlando started getting these in. I don't use them now as I make my own tabs and micro's currently. I would recommend them highly to anyone!
