    I was wondering if you ground high grade carbon,or charcoal,or ashes. Would one or any be uptaken by plants in aquariums? At least with carbon powders....its going absorb toxins for a short while. But does it in fine powder dissolve? Eventually?
    Calcium or Baking Soda also? DO they supply carbon to aquarium plants?

    Solid forms of carbon can not be up take by plants. Plants on land and in water use the gas form of carbon dioxide.

    I guess. Funny that calcium/baking soda is said to have high carbon in it...but dissolved it too is out of reach?

    I was just wondering. I wish I could just delete the topic now that the answer is no.‍‍ I sense a dead end.

    Always good to leave it for those who will ask the same question.
