I just wanted to let people know that over the past years I have been using canna aqua & canna coco and have been suffering from lockout and just about every other problem you could ever get trying to grow a simple weed.
for years using canna in my hard tap water, EC 0.7 was HELL, even mixing my tap water with 50% RO water was still giving me problems.it took me a long time, YEARS to try and work out what the problem was. My problem turned out to be because of using too much PH down.
High PH and full of calcium tap water = have to use lots of acid to bring PH down = Lockout.
I have now changed over to using Plant Magic Coco A+B ,have only been using it for about 2 weeks and all I can say is WOW.my plants have never looked so good in all my time. The leaves are a really nice green colour & the plants seem to be growing in turbo mode, really, just looking at the plants you can tell they are loving it as they look mega happy
I am using the HW A+B because of my 0.7EC hard tap water. At the moment in veg I am feeding 2ml per litre Plant Magic Coco A+B GROW. total 1.3 EC including tap water background EC.PH 6.0 Growing in Canna Coco pro mix.
Just wanted to let people know as I was thinking I may be able to help someone & give something back to the forum.So if you are using canna and are having problem with your plants try using Plant Magic.
I am very happy because I do not have to mess about filtering RO water now.That was a pain in the back side. Plus I will save money now because I do not need to buy replacement filters for the RO unit any more, & I do not need to use lots of acid anymore as the nutes bring the PH right down.
