I root tab and water column my sword plants. I do the full Seachem flourish line. Swords really need potassium and iron though. Potassium one day followed by iron the next in your scheduling.

I'm looking into dry ferts.

2 x 500ml Dosing Bottles with Micro & Macro Labels
1 x 500g Potassium Nitrate
1 x 250g Potassium Phosphate
1 x 500g Magnesium Sulphate
1 x 250g Chelated Trace Elements
1 x "Instruction / Recipe" Sheet

This is what is offers. will this cover everything i need?

i have a low/medium light aquarium with constant co2? Would this be adequate?
Unless you can get a breakdown of the "Chelated Trace elements" it is difficult to say if it covers everything you need? Whether you need "chelated" iron depends on the PH in the tank. Try to read this article about chelated iron: Chelated Iron In Aquariums - DTPA, EDTA or EDDHA

It is actually fairly easy to get all the individual chemicals you need for either dry dozing or to make a solution. The calculator at rotalabuttefly.com is your friend no matter what method you are looking at.

I have 1 - 2 threads going on my own experiences making DIY solutions with the base chemicals. Fairly easy when you get your head around it and will likely save you some money too. Happy to answer any question you may have if embarking on that route.
