I have been looking and Petsmart had some for like $8.00 for 10 tabs.
Did not check Petco yet.
Anybody using plant tabs?
I have used Flourish before but want to try tabs.

Thanks

i use the flourish tabs. they aren't too cheap, but last around 3 months before u have to replace the tab.

Probably goes against everything people will say, but I use fertilizer tablets meant for ponds:p I found them on sale ages ago, and just pound them into smaller pieces. For the rest I use dry ferts which I mix myself and dump into water.

Thanks for the answers bad to see that out of 5 people not two use the same thing.
I saw the Flourish tabs at Petsmart around $8.00 for 8 or 10.

I do have mix stuff but a few years old I wonder if still good?

Has been kept in the house but might of lost it's strength.

Thanks will let you know what I come up with.

Jobe's Fern & Palm spikes are a couple of dollars for 30. Break each one in to thirds and use those pieces as you would the brand name root tabs.
