 Hi  Trevor,
 
               here  is  few  details  about  the  Jobe  Sticks.
 
 About  the  product:  
 
 ~Jobe’s  Plant  Food  Spikes  are  thin  green  sticks  that  are  almost  2-inches  long.  
 
 ~Each  spike  contains  nutrients  that  are  released  gradually  for  houseplants.  
 
 ~The  sticks  stay  at  the  roots  of  the  plant  so  that  when  you  water  the  plant  the  nutrients  don’t  get  washed  away  like  they  might  with  other  types  of  fertilizers.  
 
 ~They  are  made  by  Weatherly  Consumer  Products  and  can  be  seen  at:  http://www.easygardener.com
 
 ~    Contains    total  nitrogen  is  13%.  To  break  that  down  it  looks  like  this:  
 Nitrate  Nitrogen-  2%;  Urea  Nitrogen  2%;  Water  Soluble  Organic  Nitrogen  2%;  Water  Insoluble  Nitrogen  7%.  It  also  contains  4%,  Phosphate  and  5%  Soluble  Potash.  
 
 ~  It    costs  $.99  for  30  sticks
 
 ~Available  only  in  US
 
 regards

 Thanks  for  the  info  Purushotham  and  Sundar.
 
 Less  than  $1  for  30  sticks!!  That's  interesting!
 
 Hey  Trevor,  where  did  you  get  it  from?
 
 Adip,  can  you  source  it?  I'm  sure  many  of  us  would  be  buying.
 
 Bye,

 Hi  Adi:
 
 Phosphates  are  one  of  the  root  cause  for  *can't  get  rid  of  that  blasted  algae*  problem.  Thats  why  you  need  to  keep  a  check  on  it,  esp.  when  the  tank  is  newly  setup.

 But,  at  the  same  time,  K,  N,  Mg,  Sulphates  and  Trace  Elements  constitutes  essential  nutrients  for  plant  growth.  As  accordingly  you  need  to  prepare  the  mix  as  per  requirements.
 
 You  can  use  Chuck's  Planted  Aquarium  Calculator  to  find  your  own  PMDD,  which  can  be  downloaded  from:

 Hello  Guys,
 
 Sorry  this  is  late  but  I  was  told  by  the  person  who  started  this  Jobe  sticks  frenzy  (  Madan)  that  only  one  particular  Jobe  stick  can  be  used  for  planted  tanks.  This  is  the  one  that  is  marked  as  "Jobe  Sticks  for  Palms  and  Ferns"  as  the  concentration  of  phosphates  is  farely  lesser  compared  to  others.  16:5  if  i  am  not  wrong.  ie.  the  Jobe  Sticks  for  Palms  and  ferns  contain  only  5%  phosphates  and  hence  does  not  pose  too  much  of  a  threat  towards  algae  blooms.  This  varient  of  Jobe  Sticks  are  not  that  easy  to  get  though.

 The  one  I  have  is  
 
 Jobes  Fertilizer  Spikes  for  Beautiful  Houseplants.
 
 The  ratio  here  of  Nitrogen[N],  Phosphate[P2O5]  and  Soluble  Potash[K2O]  is  13-4-5.

 Hi  Nytin,
 
 For  your  ref:  the  picture  that  Trevor  has  posted  clearly  points  16-2-6  as  the  ratio  that  is  prescribed.  Anything  other  than  that  will  result  in  problems  like  phosphates.  When  you  take  a  closer  look  at  the  pic  you  can  find  out  that  it  is  clearly  labled  as  For  Ferns  and  Palms.  I  think  one  of  the  chennai  guys  have  already  tried  the  other  jobes  that  you  are  talking  about  and  ended  up  with  the  algae  problems.  After  which  we  found  this  out  from  Madan.
 
 
 Regards

 Hi  Guys,
               Sorry  for  the  delay  in  replying.  Been  out  on  a  small  holiday.  A  very  important  tool  for  aquascaping  is  a  set  of  stainless  steel  tweezers.  It  has  multipe  uses  in  a  planted  aquarium.  The  tweezers  are  available  in  your  local  surgical/medical  equipment  store.  The  twelve  inch  is  easily  available  but  if  you  get  a  eighteen  inch  tweezer  it  would  be  super.  Veterinary  surgeons  use  them.  Each    Jobe  stick  is  broken  into  three  pieces  held  with  the  tweezers  and  stabbed  as  deep  as  possible  into  the  substrate  in  different  locations/areas  between  the  selected  plants  roots  .  That  way  leaching  of  phosphates  into  the  water  is  avoided/minimised  and  your  algae  bloom  is  a  non  starter.
               The  Jobe  stick  is  grayish  white  and  come  in  a  sealed  pack.  There  is  one  still  left  in  the  pic  posted.  Some  time  back  Madan  had  brought  several  of  these  packs  when  he  came  down  from  the  U.S  and  had  distributed  them  among  his  pals.  And  we  all  found  them  highly  effective.
