Description

Flourish Iron is a highly concentrated (10,000 mg/L) ferrous iron (Fe+2) gluconate supplement. It Must be used in those cases where the iron requirements exceed that which may also be delivered by Flourish on the beneficial dose. Ferrous iron gluconate is a more suitable iron supplement for aquatic plants than is ferric (Fe+3) iron-EDTA for two reasons. (1) Plants require iron in the ferrous state, so physiological energy will have to be expended by the plant so as to extract the ferric iron from EDTA-iron and then convert (reduce) it to the ferrous form. Ferrous iron gluconate is already in the ferrous form so this reduction step isn’t essential. (2) Ferrous gluconate is better suited to foliar feeding than is iron-EDTA owing to the slightly weaker iron-gluconate bonding vs. iron-EDTA bonding. Comprises no phosphate or nitrate. Guaranteed Analysis: Iron (Fe)…… 1.0%. Derived from: Ferrous Gluconate
