Plant Laterite is a rich mineral based substrate. It can be used as a base fertilizer platform with other substrates. Alternatively, the unique properties of Plant Laterite allow it to be used alone as an all in one fertilizer and gravel substrate.

Directions:

As Plant Laterite contains a clay component please follow these instructions before use:

  • Rinse in a bucket or sieve to remove the smallest particles. Do not over wash.
  • Plant Laterite will continue to let off some red clay whenever washed, this is normal.
  • Use care when adding water to the tank, we recommend laying a bag or plate over the substrate so that the hose doesn't disturb the substrate as you fill.
  • Fill to 3-4cm above the Plant Laterite to make planting easier.
  • Begin planting your aquarium. Make sure you spray your plants with water until the planting is complete.
  • Use a scraper to create gradients if desired.
  • Will initially cloud water. Ensure you use fine filter wool until the clay in the water is removed.
