Potassium Sulfate (K2SO4) is a source of Potassium (K) necessary for protein synthesis and for plants to metabolize Iron (Fe). Sulfur (S) is essential for root development. Potassium Sulfate is useful alternative to kcl when chloride sensitive plants are present
Soluble Potash(K2O) …………. 51%
Sulfur(S) ………………………. 18%
To make a typical stock solution add 35g of dry K2SO4 to 500ml of RO or distilled water and then add 24ml of this per 100L of tank.
this will give you 7.5 ppm increase of POTASSIUM.
Dosing: 1.7g (1/4tsp) of K2SO4 with give you 7.5 ppm increase of POTASSIUM in 100L (26 US gallons) of water.
Amounts above are for reference only. Your planted aquarium may need more or less depending on many factors.
