JBL ProScape Plant Start is a soil activator with living bacterial cultures for quick plant start in new aquariums for soil activation in aquariums from 20-100 l and supplies plants with the necessary nutrients and prevents magnesium deficiency.

Aquatic plants are very useful for every aquarium because they remove nutrients from the water and are thus active against algae. When reintroducing aquatic plants, it takes a long time until they have roots that are strong enough to be well anchored in the ground. With JBL PlantStart you shorten the time to grow and start your plant growth in the shortest possible time. The special bacterial mixture (mixed culture) makes it easier for the plants to absorb nutrients and trace elements. The precipitated iron III is, for example, converted to plant-available iron II.

Another advantage of JBL PlantStart emerged during tests: the bacteria very quickly form initial colonisation of the substrate and break down organic matter. In this way, a newly introduced substrate can become a functioning additional filter in an extremely short time. The resulting biofilm reduces JBL ProScape PlantStart's colonisation with blue-green algae (cyanobacteria)

Before applying soil (e.g. JBL ProScape PlantSoil), sprinkle all over the subsoil structure (e.g. JBL Volcano Mineral). Cover with the desired thickness of soil. Other variants are possible.

To determine the exact fertiliser requirement taking into account the initial values of the aquarium water, the dosing calculator is recommended.

Plant genera that take up many nutrients via roots:
Echinodorus, Cryptocoryne, Vallisneria, Crinum, Nymphea

Plant genera that take up nutrients via leaves and roots: Ludwigia, Limnophila, Hygrophila, Alternanthera, Cabomba

Our expert Oliver Knott recommends:
JBL ProScape Plant Start is ideally suited to quickly “breaking in” new substrate and quickly establishing the necessary processes in the aquarium.
