N, Potassium Nitrate Fertilizer KNO3

$ 8.50

Potassium Nitrate is a key Macronutrient vital for plant growth. Potassium Nitrate should be used in conjunction with macronutrients P and K as well as with Micronutrient fertilizer.

- 1 pump, 2cc, contains 463mg dissolved KNO3

- 1 pump per 10 gal raises KNO3 concentration by 12.23ppm


- Dose 1 pump per 10 gallons twice weekly.

- Dose 1 pump per 10 gallons every other day for densely planted high-tech tanks with CO2    injection

- If algae growth increases reduce dosage

Water changes:

- Dose 1 pump per 10 gallons of new water before water changes.

Analysis: (KNO3 – 23.15%)

- KNO3 - Δppm/1pump/10gal = +12.23ppm

Analysis breakdown: (K – 7.85%) (N – 2.80%) (NO3 – 12.45%)

- K, Potassium - Δppm/1pump/10gal = +4.15ppm

- N, Nitrogen   - Δppm/1pump/10gal = +1.48ppm

- NO3, Nitrate - Δppm/1pump/10gal = +6.58ppm

Keeping 10-20 ppm dissolved KNO3 (5-10 ppm NO3) is optimal for high-tech planted tanks with CO2 injection.

Keep KNO3 as a limiting factor for plant growth if algae occur.   Excess Nitrate and Phosphate Macronutrients can contribute to algae growth and dosage should be reduced if algae growth increases.
