Safe-t-sorb and Vermiculite Set Up
Soil Set Up
Lately it seems like there's been a lot of debate whether plants like swords and crypts, etc, actually need root supplements, or will do just as well with only water column dosing. I've always taken it for granted that they did need it, but Ive never actually tried any of them without it...
Looking to build a new 40L that will include several crypt varieties. There are many posts asking, "I use nutrified substrate/root tabs; do I need to dose?" but I am looking for feedback re the inverse:
Will these crypts grow in inert substrate, if the water is macro/microd appropriately?
