Good product, bad shipping

Every time I order this product it arrives with the lid twisted off just enough to leak out and soak the bottom of the box. Frustrating, but don't lose enough of the product to be upset about it.

My plants love this...

My plants came back to life with this! I bought a small one to see how it would work, and wow! They have gotten so big after adding this weekly!

Havent used for long but seems to work

I’ve only recently started using this product with my aquatic plants but so far it’s keeping them healthy and seems to be helping them root better.

I guess its doing it job

My tank was clear until I started adding this product once per week. I will hold off adding it for a few weeks to see if the water clears to make sure for positive that it was this product or not. I am also checking the filter.

Happy With it

It came quickly and was packaged well. It's too early to see a difference in plants, but I can't get in anywhere local so I was pleased with the fast delivery.
