Root tabs contain trace nutrients mostly/w a small amount of macros depending on which root tab.
Osmocote+ is complete so those capsules will give complete nutrients to your plants.
But better to use water column ferts(dry or solution of) as some plants don't use from the sub.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight the opposite direction...
