My pygmy chain swords and chain swords and crypts are all in playsand with no tabs and growing fine just with Flourish Comp liquid.

API also make a root tab but others have reported problems so I would not use it. Nutrafin used to make sticks which I found the best, but I have not been able to find them anywhere locally or online for months now, so I assume they no longer make them. Pity, because they lasted a year and the swords exploded in growth.

Gotchya, I think I will stick with the seachem then. I think I may just use them for all my swords for right now. They seem to be the one plant that always seems to be nutrient deprived...for me at least.

Echinodorus are heavy feeders, and while they will manage with twice weekly Flourish Comp liquid, I have found over the years that substrate tabs do give them an extra push.
