If plants are growing and blossoming in the aquarium, as well as water and light they need a very specific selection of nutrients. As the aquarium is an artificial habitat, however, these nutrients are not unlimited. The nutrients must be introduced from outside the biosystem. Dupla has created a coordinated system with the components Duplarit, Dupla Plant Basic and Dupla Plant 24, to enable you to continuously introduce nutrients to the aquarium without under-fertilizing or over-fertilizing. This contributes to the optimal plant growth and helps you avoid over-fertilization and algae problems.
How does the 4-component system work?
Duplarit specifically fertilize the substrate. The nutrients are stabilised and supplied to the roots but cannot be sapped from the water. Dupla Plant Basic is a base fertilizer, which contains all the necessary nutrients along with Duplarit and is added to the aquarium water. Dupla Plant 24 adds to the nutrients consumed by the plants every day.
General: For optimal plant growth, begin fertilization as soon as you set up the aquarium. You can achieve excellent results with the components Dupla Plant Basic and Dupla Plant 24 for your plants, but without Duplarit your aquarium plants won’t have active root fertilization.
Dupla Plant Basic base fertilizer: With this base fertilizer, all aquarium plants get a balanced combination of trace elements and iron, which is accessible to plants. You can avoid deficiency symptoms in your plants. Dupla Plant Basic is one component of the Dupla fertilizer system and works best in combination with Duplarit and Dupla Plant 24.
