SUPPLEMENT WITH POTASSIUM
Potassium is one of the most necessary element for the development and growth of plants, making up, in fact, 1% of the weight of the plants (calculated dry), and is second only to nitrogen. Even if it doesn’t contribute to the formation of fundamental biological elements like proteins, glucose or chlorophyll, Potassium is invaluable for the regulation of physiological processes, such as:
– Activating over 80 enzymes which participate in photosynthesis and protein, glucose and lipid synthesis;
– The regulation of osmotic processes in the cellular cytoplasm and therefore the turgidity of the cells which play and important role in the whole plant;
– The semi-permeability of the cellular membranes;
– The regulation of the acid-base balance.
Typical symptoms of lack of Potassium is the difficulty of new leaf growth, remaining very small, the formation of small holes with consequential blackened areas, or the yellowing of the leaf blades and the reduction in their thickness until they become transparent. In the water used for the creation of an aquarium or in the periodic water change, either with tap water or osmotic water, Potassium is lacking, if not completely absent. The risk is therefore high and it is advisable to reintegrate this mineral salt.
FLORIDO K7 is not a fertilizer but a liquid Potassium supplement, developed by Equo. It favours the correct development of all aquariums’ ecosystems, without the risk of over-dosage, remaining active in the pH range between 4-9. FLORIDO K7 is essential for a healthy growth of the plants with an intense and natural leaf colour.
Osmosis water, Potassium.
Push dispenser two times (2,5ml) per 100lt of water, four times a week.
If you dose 10 ml in 100 liters, it increases the K of 16mg/l.
It recommends weekly reach N = 10mg/l, P = 1 mg/l, K = 20mg/l.
(Dosing FLORIDO K7 + FLORIDO N7 = 20mg/l K).
It is recommended to dose Micro and Macro nutrients on different days.
