I don't necessarily recommend them over anything else like the Flourish tabs, but I do support the idea of buying from a fellow hobbyist (Rootmedic) rather than a company like Seachem. After trying the Rootmedic, I went back to Flourish tabs (I can buy them locally)! I didn't see any difference in plant growth and I still have those darn tiny fertilizer pellets sitting on my substrate when I disrupt it by moving plants around...
Don't miss-understand. The Rootmedic was inexpensive (Justin@Rootmedic has great sales periodically), they work a long
time, and worked as advertised. I just didn't like the aesthetic outcome after 6 months. Oh, the extra capsules also melted in their plastic bags in my very humid workshop (where my fry grow-out tanks are). The Rootmedic tabs need to be stored in a low-humidity environment!
