View Full Version : Optimal placement for root tabs?

12-10-2010, 05:19 PM
I've started using root tabs in my aquarium which my plants seem to like. I just added some more in today and was wondering what the optimal placement for the tabs is.

Should I put them directly under the plant or off to the side to promote root growth?

Should I always put the tabs in the same place?

Should larger plants (like my big lillies) get an extra tab?

Most tabs say to place a couple inches from the root structure.

I find out how much area they cover,do some math and center then within those zones. I use aquariumplants.com root tabs that are 6x6 placement of 1 tab per.
