Red Sea Flora Base Plant Aquarium Substrate


In nature, aquatic plants flourish where the river or lake bed provides a regular supply of vital minerals and organic substances and a permeable yet solid rooting foundation.

Flora Base is a patented, scientifically formulated substrate produced from natural volcanic ash-based soil, sintered with other minerals into a soft, porous, granular structure. It contains all the nutrients required by plants for proper development and lasting growth, while enabling growing roots to penetrate and anchor themselves firmly to the substrate. The unique porous structure of the Flora Base granules optimizes oxygen penetration and microbal propagation and allows plant nutrients to be released into the surrounding water, obviating the need to add root nutrient supplements for at least 6 months. In addition, Flora Base serves as an excellent filter media when combined with an under-gravel filter, as its granules enable it to actively absorb floating particles, removing cloudiness from the water.


Flora Base acts as a pH buffer, maintaining a stable pH between 6.5 and 7.0, which is ideal for almost all aquatic plants. Each 11 lb. bag of Flora Base provides the right quantity of substrate for a 10 gallon aquarium.
