Dennerle Plant Care Basic Root is a universal clay-based nutrient depot for all aquarium plants that prefer to absorb their nutrients via the roots. It helps newly planted plants to grow, older plants get fresh vigour.

Safe start for newly set up aquariums:
The growing phase is a difficult time for every aquarium plant: it has to completely rebuild its root network and get used to the new water and soil conditions. The fertiliser balls ensure that newly planted aquarium plants grow securely and vigorously right from the start. Iron and important trace elements promote root formation so that the plant can quickly anchor itself in the substrate. A specially formulated nutrient complex helps the plants to adapt more quickly to the new site conditions.

Fresh growth for older aquariums:
The substrate of every aquarium becomes depleted of nutrients over the years. At the latest when the resulting growth disorders can no longer be remedied by normal fertilisation via the water column (foliar fertilisation), the substrate should be regenerated. Plant Care Basic Root replenishes the soil's nutrient reserves in a targeted manner. You close the nutrient gaps that inevitably occur as an aquarium ages, especially in the area of vital trace elements.


  • Root nutrient depot for aquarium plants
  • With iron and important trace elements
  • For magnificent plants and vibrant colours
  • Optimal for strongly rooting plants e.g. Cryptocoryne, Echinodorus
  • Ideal as a start-up aid and for targeted top-up fertilising


Depending on the size of the plant, simply press 1 - 4 balls into the root area.
