Concentrated potassium supplement for freshwater planted aquaria
Flora Viv K
The Continuum advantage
Flora-Viv K is a high quality, concentrated, bio-available, potassium supplement for freshwater planted aquariums. It is designed to provide critical supplemental potassium for biological processes in all plants, such as photosynthesis, nutrient uptake, and strong root growth. Potassium deficiency in plants often causes chlorosis, and is seen as pale leaves even tissue decay. Other deficiencies can cause similar symptoms, such as deficiencies in nitrogen, iron and magnesium. It is therefore recommended that the hobbyist use Flora-Viv first, to provide a wide range of plant nutrients, and then use then use Flora-Viv K, this product, to supplement potassium, if necessary. Flora-Viv products contain no toxic polycycloglutaracetal or glutaraldehyde.
Use in aquarium keeping
Do not overdose this product! Simultaneous use of Bacter-Gen F to establish and sustain growth of proper microorganisms and recycle aquarium nutrients will greatly benefit all plants. The use of Flora-Viv Prolifera will provide additional carbon for heavily planted aquariums. Growth of all photosynthetic organisms also requires strong lighting of proper spectrum. Consult your lighting supplier for assistance in the proper type of light, and photo periods for the plants that you are growing. Be sure to ask lots of questions to get the very best lighting system for your aquarium.
Directions and protocol
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of aquarium water on alternating days.
May be added 3 to 5 times per week, as needed to raise the potassium concentration, if measuring. Add as required to maintain the concentration between 15 and 30 mg/L. Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior method of addition. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of potassium consumption during the time it takes to add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Flora-Viv K to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by .083. (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 5 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 5 x 0.083 which equals 20 ml of Flora-Viv K or 4 capfuls).
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water, contact a poison control center. If in eyes flush with water.
