I have actually done this once. I had them and I figured that they will work. However, these are not designed for aquatic plants. I broke one up into four pieces and put them in a 20gal tank. They made the nitrates spike quite high. I battled algae for quite a while. Admittedly though, the tank didn't really need fertilizer like this. I had a rich soil substrate.

Too HIGH in phosphates. Use them if you want or need algae.

Thank you for your replies. After looking into the contents of these, and taking your(and others) suggestions. This product doesn't have enough advantages. I am familiar with the Osmacote Plus, thank you for the info all! :)
