I think the sponge in my filter picked up pretty much all of the root tab gunk since it turned the water very dark when I was cleaning it. (in old tank water of course! ;D)
I had good success with Nutrafin Plant-Gro sticks. They last a year, and from observing the growth of my large swords I think that is accurate. And by comparison to Flourish tabs that have to be replaced every 2-3 months, the cost is significantly less for the sticks.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
