Flourish Excel is a simple source of
readily available organic carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is
typically obtained from CO2, but, may also be obtained via relatively simple
organic compounds (such as photosynthetic intermediates). Since both processes
occur simultaneously one can derive a substantial benefit with the use of
Flourish Excel either alone or in conjunction with CO2 injection. Flourish Excel
also has iron reducing properties which promote the ferrous state of iron
(Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (Fe+3).
Flourish Excel is recommended for use with the entire family of Flourish
products as well as our gravel, Flourite, our GH builder, Equilibrium, and our
non-phosphate buffers, Acid Buffer ™ and Alkaline Buffer.
On initial use or after a major water change, use 10 mL for every 80 Liters (20
gallons). Thereafter use 1 mL for every 40 Liters (10 gallons) daily or every
other day. Use the enclosed dispenser to measure 1 mL (top mark). For larger
volume tanks, note that 1 capful = 5 mL.
250 mL will treat 50 gallons for 1-2 months.
