Canna Start is an easy to use one-part mineral based, gentle nutrient feed developed specifically for cuttings and seedlings that have started to spread roots and plants that have been potted for the first time. It provides young plants with all the macro and micro nutrients they require for a head start in life.
How it works
Commonly, growers like to just use a half or quarter dose of their normal base nutrient when feeding their young plants. While this is an easy option, this dilution it does not actually give your plants what they need and they can soon become deficient and yellowing. Canna Start will provide your seedlings and rooted cuttings with all the essential elements and micro & macro nutrients they need to develop into strong healthy plants. Combine with a root stimulator (Canna recommend Rhizotonic) so your plants develop a strong root system quickly. Once they are established enough or have been transplanted on you can then switch to your normal base nutrient.
How to use Canna Start
Canna Start is available in 1L and 5L bottles, it is suitable for all growing mediums but not for re-circulating systems such as aeroponic propagators. For use during the propagation stage we recommend to soak your propagation medium in a nutrient solution containing Canna Start so your seeds and cuttings can begin to utilize it as soon as possible. It can then be further applied when needed. For your plants, Canna recommend using at a rate of 4ml/L in water, however a slightly less dose could be ample at this early stage. Add the dose to your reservoir and mix very well.
Canna start works alongside Canna Rhizotonic to form part of the exceptional hydroponic nutrient & additives range from Canna. For help with these products and how to use them, including ingredients and reviews please call us or check out website.
I will never go back to not using a Start product in my grow room. I used to dilute, which was an obvious thing to do based on the size of the plants and roots at that stage, but now that I have used Canna Start for the last 3 months, I can see the difference. The roots are so much stronger and the plants colour is spectacular - it made me double check the ingredients to make sure I wasn't putting anything into them that I shouldn't have. Looking back, its almost laughable that I wasn't using this addition before
Hi there, Great to hear you're seeing the results! Its a longstanding product that is as much in demand today as it has ever been. Kind Regards,
