Not much when adding it to a an aquarium. If you use it in foliar spray it
can relatively decent effects. These are typically one time effects, meaning
that it will not continue after you add it or adding more will increase the
effects. I used it on emmersed crypts. It never did a thing for the
submersed plants. Save your money. If you do use it, dip/spray your plants
and leave them in a bag for a 1/2 day then plant. Otherwise I'd pass.

Superthrive works and perhaps better. Really hard to say though.
