Chelated trace mix is a carefully blended mix of micronutrients – essential for healthy plants. It can be used in planted aquariums, hydroponics and horticulture
- Fe 8.4%
- Mn 1.82%
- Zn 1.16%
- B 1.05%
- Cu 0.23%
- Mo 0.15%
Boron (B): Essential for the regulation of other nutrients. Helps the plant produce sugars and starches. Very small amounts required.
Copper (Cu): Essential for the plant to reproduce. Helps stimulate the production of proteins.
Chloride (Cl): Plays a role in plant metabolisation of other nutrients. Usually present in chlorinated water (dechlorinators convert Chlorine into a salt of chloride). May be deficient in well water or deionised water.
Iron (Fe): absolutely essential for plant growth, and usually deficient in all l water. Must be present for the manufacture of chlorophyll. Without adequate iron (about 0.1 to 0.5 ppm), plants will yellow and fail to produce dark green growth.
Manganese (Mn): important nutrient that helps the plant digest starches and nitrogen, thus helps the plant to use other minerals. A deficiency may actually show up as a deficiency in one of the other nutrients, such as iron (yellowing leaves).
Molybdenum (Mo): assists the plant to metabolise nitrogen. Very tiny amounts required to maintain plant health.
Zinc (Zn): Essential for carbohydrate metabolisation. Helps regulate plant growth.
