Canna Terra Seed Mix 25 litre
Lightly Fertilised Mix that's Optimised for Younger Plants
Many potting soils come pre-fertilised to levels that are often too high for younger plants, causing over-feeding issues and stunting growth. Seed Mix is much gentler and won't burn young plants! You can then have complete control over fertilisation levels, administering nutrients as and when you need them.
Virtually all soil products encourage beneficial microbial activity in the root-zone. This increases yield and root-health. For a really flourishing microherd we highly recommend using Ecothrive Neutralise to avoid the chlorine/chloramine in tap water from inhibiting, or even killing, the friendly microbes, plus a quality beneficial inoculant such as Ecothrive Biosys when growing in soil. For an extra kick, try Ecothrive Charge too!

How Seed Mix Works
Seed Mix is a blend of natural ingredients, consisting of coco coir, white peat, black peat, sand, dolomite lime, mineral NPK fertiliser. It's light enough to use with cuttings and seedlings without causing burning. Even if you're potting up for the later stages, it's a good medium to use as a 'blank canvas' - meaning that you can add nutrients to it that are tailored to your plants' exact requirements - something that many professional growers demand.

How to Use Seed Mix
Though Seed Mix is optimised for taking cuttings and sewing seeds, there's no reason why it can't be used for potting up at any stage of your plants' life cycle. Because it contains very little feed, you will need to add some additional fertiliser for older plants. It effectively gives you a blank canvas to work from, allowing you to tailor your nutrient regiment to your plants' exact needs, which is something that many growers appreciate. The low mineral content (0.4 EC) will be enough to sustain seeds through the germination process, but as plants start to develop growth you should add a light feed such as Canna Start to provide adequate nutrition.
