Forget clay pebbles, just mix with perlite at 5% in the coco. I've had good results this way with that little extra drainage. Please wet it down before use as it's dusty. If you could elaborate on your grow. What lights, whole setup, etc. Would be cool. I'm guessing 4X600W for bloom? Don't forget. Rhizotonic very alkaline and last time I checked it was about pH 8.2 ish. just make sure you use insect frass, that ecothrive charge stuff as it works so gooooood.

I started off using the canna grow chart, a bit less to what the chart says, and it done me fine http://www.canna-uk.com/growguide (sorry mods if that link is no good)

all the best mate

No need to add anything to the coco, just dont pack it down too tightly when you fill the pots.

Canna A+B are great on their own. I don't bother with any of the other additives, as the difference they make is minimal if any at all.

Good luck with your grow.

Forget perlite it's a waste of time and money. Coco on its own is just fine as it holds the perfect air to water ratio. You can buy 60/40 (coco clay pebbles) mix if you want it faster draining if you do though you may need multiple waterings per day when your plants are really going for it. You will get explosive growth from treating coco more like hydro but it all comes down to your way of growing and if your hand watering doing it 3 -4 times a day isn't going to be fun lol

Canna have a nutrient calculator if you have a google . It will give you a good idea on when and where to use your nutrients. Be a bit causious about the strengths it gives you as even the light feed schedule wil burn a lot of cannabis strains

Canna a + b, rhizoctonic, Pk are all you should need for some lovely buds. The rest is down to you as a grower and the environment you create for your ladies

I trust you have an intake, extraction and a carbon filter ?

What is the EC of your tap water? I also use Canna pro plus and Canna A + B. My tap water is soft,EC 0.2. For my seedlings/cuttings I add 1ml per litre A + B,which gives me EC 0.6 inc background. For the rest of veg,I use a max of 1.5ml per litre,which gives me EC1 inc background. For flower I use approx 2ml ish per litre which gives EC 1.4. I hav'nt used Rhizo,zym,boost or PK for a while now,so can't remember how that will affect EC levels. I would suggest you don't use the levels stated on the bottles tho,you will possibly end up burning your plants. Less is often more. ATB mate.

I haven't had them feeding on bottle strengths, but with a good long veg I have had some stonking plants that were drinking up 3ml per litre with no burn at all. My water is very soft, not took an E/C or a PH reading for years.

I have been using Plant Magic recently, but I am going back to Canna, I get far less mineral imbalances.

@@BuDDaHBuDs go to your water board site and find out if your water is hard or soft. if soft you might want to consider adding some kind of cal/mag supplement as well. Most nute lines to a version.

Canna boost accelerator is a fantastic additive.... expensive but you get it all back in yield
