This seed and cutting media is ideal for a base to grow from seed or as a cutting media once rooting has been established. Sow Seeds straight into the Canna Terra Seed Mix and watch them grow.
Works great in combination with Canna Start.
The homogeneous, stable structure of Terra Seed Mix is great for retaining water, which gives the seeds the best chance of germinating correctly.
Sowing Seeds in Terra Seed Mix
Sow the seeds 2-3 mm deep (max. 5 mm) in the Canna Terra Seed Mix in a container that has a maximum diameter of 5 cm. Spray the growing medium regularly. Seedlings first use the energy reserves that are available in the seed.
Keep the seeds warm (20-25°C) and moist using a propagator for example. Remove the propagator’s lid as soon as the seedlings emerge from the ground.
The young seedlings are very delicate so do not place them in direct sunlight or close to a powerful growing lamp since this may burn them. Give the young plants a feeding solution that has a low EC (1.2) and add Canna Rhizotonic to strengthen the roots. The seedlings are ready to be potted out when they have developed two or three leaves.
Cuttings and further
Once the plants have developed a good root system in the Canna Terra Seed Mix they can be transferred to a growing medium such as Canna Terra Professional, Canna Terra Professional Plus, Canna Coco substrates (Natural/Professional Plus), Canna Aqua Clay Pebbles or rock wool where they will be cultivated to maturity. Canna’s range of nutrients includes the best specific combinations for each of these growing mediums that will guarantee an optimum harvest.
