Arguably the finest coco growing medium and certainly one of the longest standing currently available on the market. Canna Coco Professional Plus is a premium, fully organic coir product. It has outstanding water holding properties but still remains airy and well draining. It undergoes a strict washing and buffering process to ensure the product is ready for growing and pH stable. It also contains the beneficial bacteria Trichoderma which helps facilitate healthy root growth

Why Choose Canna Coco Professional Plus

Coir is the outer husk of a coconut shell refined and processed for agricultural use. It is this production process which is crucial to making coco a useable product for growing plants with and not many brands do it as well as Canna do! Their coco is washed and buffered twice giving an incredibly low EC value of on average 0.1 which means the product can receive the RHP Stamp. They also use a different sterilisation process throughout which ensures a high amount of the naturally occurring beneficial bacteria Trichoderma remains present in the medium which is perfect for fast growing, healthy roots.

Growing in coco coir has steadily become one of the most popular methods of growing. Whilst feeling (and looking) very much like traditional peat based potting mixes, coco has significant differences that offer the gardener a wealth of advantages. Whether you are hand watering, using drip irrigation or even flood and drain systems, Canna Coco Professional Plus makes the ideal choice for your substrate. In terms of consistency, quality and performance, it really doesn’t get much better. With production and manufacturing processes that far out-strip any of their rivals, Canna have successfully held the coir crown since it all began.

Aside from some very low level ‘background’ nutrients, for all intents and purposes coco is an inert substrate. This means you get all the control over the nutrient inputs as you would in a more typical hydroponic media like rockwool, but retain the benefits associated with it being an entirely natural product. Many growers opt to use coco as a ‘stepping stone’ when moving from soil based growing to hydroponics.

How To Use Canna Coco Professional Plus

Fill your chosen pots or containers with coco ensuring you do not compact it too much as this can ruin the airy structure your roots love, instead tap the sides of the pot to help settle and level it out. As Canna Coco Professional Plus contains no nutrients you will need to use fertiliser with every watering right from the beginning. It very important to choose a ‘coco-specific’ nutrient that works in harmony with your medium. Due to it’s make-up and the way coco works choosing the wrong type of nutrient can potentially cause lockout issues especially calcium and potassium related. The Canna Coco range is a great choice if you wish to stick with the same brand, however any 'coco' food will work!

Canna Coco Professional Plus is perfect for use in pots as a standalone media whether you are hand-watering or using drip-irrigation. It is best suited in a run-to-waste environment, getting rid of any excess/waste nutrient or water after each irrigation. However, with regular tank changes to mitigate against any build up in unwanted elements, coir can still be used very successfully in a re-circulating system.

Canna Coco Professional Plus is available in 50L bags.
