I think it would be fun to try and grow some extra java fern and anubias nana petite emersed in a tub.

What should I use as a fertilizer?  Is dilute miracle gro sufficient or do i need micro nutrients in the water too.  Can I use something like easy green and supplement the nitrogen and phosphate the fish would normally make with miracle gro? (I have miracle gro laying around if you couldn't guess)

What concentration of fertilizer should I aim for?

Hi @CT_

An excellent choice.  I have grown aquarium plants emersed for about 9 years now so I can have some of the more 'rare' species on hand for an aquascape when I need them.  I use Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food for all my emersed plants.  I use a little over 1/2 of the small spoon that comes with the fertilizer in 20 ounces of water.  It gives me good results.  Hope this helps! -Roy
