Legend Essential™

Legend Essential™ Is an all-natural, biological growth enhancer for aquatic plants. Its advanced formula contains nutrients that dramatically stimulate the growth of both roots and shoots in aquatic plants.

Phytohormones are a group of naturally occurring compounds that play crucial roles in regulating plant growth in a wide range of developmental processes, including cell division, formation and activity of shoot meristems, induction of photosynthesis gene expression, leaf senescence, nutrient mobilization, seed germination, root growth, and stress response.

Used regularly, it also enhances mineral absorption and improves disease resistance. It is non-toxic and completely safe for all plant varieties as well as for fish and aquatic organisms.

During the first ten to fourteen days after application, Essential™ works to stimulate root growth beneath the surface. After this initial induction period, significantly enhanced growth in the leaves and stems of the plants will occur. With the liquid fertilizer Legend Essential™, you can supply yours with the macronutrients essential for healthy plant growth. Your plants can now use a well-stocked nutrient buffet and grow healthy and lush.

The algae feed gaps in the nutrient supply. Thread algae, in particular, celebrate happy primeval times when there is a lack of nitrate. You can prevent algae plague by the balanced fertilization of your aquarium plants.

Basically, you only dose as much  Legend Essential™ as your aquarium plants actually consume. Therefore, the dosage recommendation is not set in stone, you can adapt it to the needs of your plants and give a little more or a little less fertilizer as needed.

We generally recommend a water change of 25% to 50% per week in fertilized aquariums. If you already measure high nitrate or phosphate levels in your aquarium water, you shouldn’t use this fertilizer in this case, there are more suitable solutions in the range from  Legend ®, for example, the  Legend® single component fertilizers.

Please note that you should definitely supplement them with a micronutrient fertilizer (full iron fertilizer) such as the  Legend Heaven™ so that your plants get all the micronutrients they need in addition to the macronutrients.
