How Canna Start Works
Canna Start is an easy to use one-part mineral based nutrient that has been especially developed by Canna for feeding seedlings and cuttings that have already started to show some roots and particularly for plants which just been potted for the first time. Canna Start is gentle but provides the right amount of macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients for seedlings and cuttings to develop into strong, healthy plants. Canna Start can be used in seed-soil and with almost any type of rooting plug including Rockwool, Jiffy Plugs, Fleximix, RootRiot and most others.
Using Canna Start
Always shake the bottle well before use. Canna recommends using this product at a rate of 4ml/litre in water although you may find that a weaker solution such as 2ml/litre is more suitable for a first-time feed for some plants. Add the required dose to your feed-water or reservoir and mix well. The pH can then be tested and adjusted if necessary. Apply the feed to your plants and ensure that some run-off (10%) is achieved.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
