Using the correct preparation of aquatic planting soil and proper care will produce the descriptive flowers and growth that have adorned water gardens for decades! Tricker's aquatic fertilizers are used at our historic nursery and have been producing thousands of the finest aquatics for decades!

  1. Begin with a good topsoil (not potting soil).
  2. Mix into the soil the granular aquatic fertilizer Praefecta (see below).
  3. Mix into the soil Tricker's AMT (read more below if recommended).
  4. Put this soil mixture into the aquatic crate and plant your aquatics.
  5. Place crate with aquatic plants into your water garden. Then, fertilize monthly or as needed with Tricker's TRICO fertilizer tablets
Thus, you will need ONLY THREE items to correctly plant and fertilize your aquatic plants. Do not let a single year go by without enjoying the growth from our aquatic fertilizers! See cost savings collections below!
