Dwarf Hairgrass/Ammania/Lud Repens/Java Fern/Bacopia mint/Micranthemum Micranthemoides (BABY TEARS)/swords/Java moss/Wysteria.

Hi these are my plants. Everything from the hairgrass to the baby tears is new. A few days old anyways. What ferts do you recommend for them? I'm building up my planted tank and thought it would make more sence to go with encouraging new growth with the plants I have. Have you any advice?

Thanks for your input.
Happy hollidays!

KN03... potassium nitrate

With 4WPG are you injecting C02?

I dose Kent grow, Kent micros, Kent iron, KNO3 (Green light stump remover).

I would wait for 2-3 weeks before you start dosing ferts, if your plants have just been planted. DIY C02 is fine just make sure that you are injecting between 20-30ppm, you may have to use two DIY to get this reading depending on the size of your tank.

I've got three so far for my 55 gal. Three two liters. I've started liquid dosing so far. I don't know enough about other ferts to try them so far. Thanks for the reply!

Three bottles should be plenty of C02, I run two bottles on my 55G tank.

I'm not falmilair with liquid Docin so I don't know what it contains. You do need to add micras/micros, iron and maybe some other ferts depending on what your tank is lacking. I use the kent line of ferts...
