For Planzen:
-. Orinoco Grow, daily fertilizer instead of hunting the edge, at least 6 drops. Bin so far very pleased with this fertilizer.
Before that, I had a mixture of Amtra iron fertilizer and Dennerle V30 Complete - and twice in a short time an algal bloom. Not nice ... therefore the fertilizer conversion.
