  • Bioavailable organic carbon source for the planted aquarium
  • Use as an alternative to CO2 injection or in addition to it
  • Introduces photosynthetic intermediates

Flourish Excel™ is a source of bioavailable organic carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is typically obtained from CO2, but, may also be derived from simple organic compounds (such as photosynthetic intermediates). The use of either CO2 injection or Flourish Excel™ does not necessarily negate the use of the other. Because the processes of producing photosynthetic intermediates and building onto them occur simultaneously, one can derive a substantial benefit with the use of Flourish Excel™ either alone or in conjunction with CO2 . The combination is particularly ideal for situations when continuing to add CO2 could result in dangerously low pH levels. Flourish Excel™ also has iron reducing properties which promote the ferrous state of iron (Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (Fe+3).

The reason plants need CO2 is to produce longer chain carbon compounds also known as photosynthetic intermediates. Photosynthetic intermediates includes compounds such as ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate, and 2-carboxy-3-keto-D-arabinitol 1,5 bisphosphate. Although the names are complicated, the structures are quite simple (5 carbon chains). Flourish Excel™ does not contain these specific compounds per se, but one that is quite similar. By dosing with Flourish Excel™ you bypass the involvement of CO2 and introduce the already finished, structurally similar compounds. It is in its structural similarity that Flourish Excel™ is able to be utilized in the carbon chain building process of photosynthesis. Simple chemical or enzymatic steps can easily convert it to any one to any one of the above named compounds (or a variety of others).

Damaged or Perished on arrival

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, and will never knowingly send out sub-standard or faulty products. We use trusted shipping partners, Royal Mail and DPD, because in our experience they are the best. However, accidents do happen, especially when you are in the business of selling glass and plants!

If any items in your order are received damaged on arrival, please get in touch on the day they arrive. You will need to email us photos for insurance purposes, hello@scapednature.com

Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for plants that perish or deteriorate once they are in your aquarium or terrarium - the reason is simple, all aquarium and terrarium set-ups are different, and all plants have different needs. Doing your research ahead of time is all part of the learning process, and we hope our website provides enough information for you to make an informed decision. If you need more information about a product, or are unsure if it will work with your set-up, just get in touch, we won't bite!
