A substrate is a medium in which roots of plants can grow and which enables the plant to stand up.
a. The plant needs different proportions of nutrient elements in these different stages of development.
b. The plants acidifies the root environment when it starts to flower. This means the root environment needs different elements.
As soon as the first signs of flowers appear.
A & B together are the nutrients a plant needs. They are separated into a bottle of A and one of B to make the solutions as concentrated as possible. Always use A and B in equal amounts.
If A & B would be together in one bottle much more volume would be needed to dissolve the nutrients. Never mix concentrated A and B together since insoluble nutrients (gypsum) will be formed.
The biggest difference is their origin, which is the reason why the organic nutrients can be used for organic growing.

We do not have samples of our products. The smallest size of bottles we have is 0.25 litres. We don't deliver to private individuals. Please contact one of our dealers.
pH has a great influence on the availability of the different nutrient elements. Therefore be sure the pH is always in the right range. The best availability range in the substrate is from 5.2- up to 6.2.
But CANNA recommends a different range for each type of substrate:
|TERRA||5.8 – 6.2|
|COCO||5.5 – 6.2|
|Others||5.2 – 6.2|
EC means electrical conductivity. EC is a number presenting the total of dissolved salts in the water. They include salts originating from the water and salts that the nutrients added.
We recommend to use PK 13/14 always for one week! CANNA nutrients already contain a certain amount of P and K. When the plant is in a certain stage of the flowering stage we can't increase the feed for the plant any more, so we change the PK-ratio by adding PK 13/14 for one week.
Trichoderma (a fungus family) do not kill bacteria. Most Trichoderma protect the plant against harmful fungi. This is because they eat other fungi. They stimulates the root environment so roots can develop better and with more root hairs. As a result the plant gains more vitality.
There are many different substrates and growing methods, which roughly can be classified into 4 groups. CANNA sells different nutrients specifically developed for these different substrates or methods. The four groups are CANNA TERRA (peat based mixtures), CANNA COCO (coco substrates) and for inert substrates CANNA Classic (run-to-waste) and CANNA AQUA (for recirculating systems).
