After several years of development and testing, CANNA has succeeded in producing a coco brick that is the exact same high quality medium that CANNA is known for but in a compressed form and one that truly makes a difference. A hole difference! Its most distinctive feature is the hole. It creates extra surface which makes it easier to absorb water. Therefore the CANNA COCO Brick expands extremely fast.
This brick makes life easier in many ways: it is easy to use and it saves the grower time, money and effort. If you want to know the 'hole' difference.
The CANNA COCO quality in a brick
This CANNA COCO brick is the exact same high quality as the much desired loose fill CANNA COCO. This means it is made from the highest quality ingredients. It is washed and buffered, not steam sterilized and RHP certified for horticulture. The buffering process allows CANNA to “pre-program” the medium to a certain age. This ensures the same consistent, high quality medium time after time. The composition of coco components blended together offers the best water-air ratio.
All of this insures CANNA COCO meets the 4 benchmarks for a quality coco medium;
- Physical structure
- Chemical stability
- Free of weed seeds
CANNA COCO medium matches perfectly with CANNA COCO nutrients. Due to the special characteristics of coco and the applied washing and buffering process, it is possible for CANNA to combine vegetative and flowering nutrients in one nutrient mix. This means the nutrient can be used throughout the growing cycle and there is no need to worry about the proper time to convert from grow- to bloom nutrients.
About 5 liters of coco fertilizer solution per m2 a day (for full-grown plants). For bigger plants use a minimum of 5 liters. Using a larger pot provides you with a more stable root environment. Keep in mind, you will want to provide sufficient drainage in your pots. Use a thin layer of clay pellets, or stone, at the bottom of the pot for proper drainage.
CANNA COCO coconut pith fiber is a high quality product. Its texture, porosity and purity make it and excellent grow medium. Furthermore, the coconut is pre-treated during a special process. This is necessary to obtain an optimal growing condition, assuring the best development potential of your plants. Use CANNA COCO with the appropriate fertilizer and you know you are investing in quality and consistency!
It’s very easy to use. I usually put a brick 40l into a Tote bin and add phd water and it breaks up very easy if enough water is used. I have had a few great crops with it so far. I will be using from now on. I used to use promix hp bit have fully switched to Canna coco
