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.
How to use?
CANNA COCO is a fantastic plant growth medium, offering many advantages to both the gardener and his plants. CANNA COCO is, manufactured from coconuts grown in India. During the production process, the quality is monitored continuously, to ensure a high-quality product.
CANNA COCO is a natural product with a homogenous structure. CANNA COCO is free of harmful viruses and soil-borne diseases. The coconut pith fiber contains a complex water/ air mixture, which provides an ideal environment for almost every breeding method. CANNA COCO is re-usable and ultimately it can be disposed of in outdoor garden areas.
- Water as required with the special CANNA Coco A and B fertilizer.
- Adjust container size if containers dry down to slow or if impossible to manually apply daily.
- Adjust the system to apply irrigation with nutrients, to 20% drainage, when 50% of the crop has used or loss 50% of the water the container can hold.
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!
- Open the bag
Tip: the fracture line makes it easy to break the brick if you wish to make 10 liters of coco instead of 20 liters
- Add clean water (also pour through the holes) in steps of 0.5 to 1 liter until the coco is totally expanded
Tip: use lukewarm to warm water to increase the speed of expansion
- If needed, loosen the coco a bit with your hands into a uniform product.
