2. Additives

As you may have seen in the tables, you will have to use some additives for the best result possible. These additives improve plant health and yields, and are used in all of the feeding schedules above so here’s a bit of information for you to know why you should use them.

Cannazym

Cannazym is one of the top-selling additives on the entire market, and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it produced by CANNA, one of the most trusted cannabis cultivation brands the world over, but it also just does exactly what it says on the box. Cannazym contains enzymes designed to stimulate root growth, boosting plant health even more; This product prevents harmful bacteria and fungi from attacking your plant while also removing dead roots, keeping vital root space free and full of oxygen, thus improving overall root health.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)

The beneficial enzymes in CANNAZYM convert dead root growth into minerals and sugars, transforming them into bioavailable nutrients that help feed the plant. Dead roots are the perfect breeding ground for detrimental mold and bacteria, so by speeding up the decomposition process the risk decreased. The mix of more than 12 different enzymes and vitamins with extracts from desert plants helps boost the plant’s natural defenses and hormone production capabilities. CANNAZYM promotes the accelerated growth of new roots and helps ward off many harmful bacteria and mold. If you are looking to reuse your growing medium (like with no-till farming) CANNAZYM is an indispensable tool.

How and When to Use

  • Make sure you remeber to shake the bottle up well before every single use.
  • Add 25ml of CANNAZYM to 10 liters of filtered water.
  • Can be used daily or weekly, throughout the entire grow cycle.
  • Can be stored in a cool, dry, dark spot for up to 4 days.
  • Do not mix with hydrogen peroxide. 

Rhizotonic

Rhizotonic is a strong root stimulant that aids in nutrient absorption and helps improve root development; After the first few uses, you’ll see extraordinary root growth while improving your plant’s resistance against diseases and keeping them healthy. This algae-based vegetative growth simulator contains vitamins such as B1&B2 which boost the plant’s natural ability to produce hormones and root growth. Perfect for use with clones, cutting, and transplants. It also helps speed up the germination process. Simply dilute 40ml of RHIZOTONIC in 10 liters of water and soak your seed overnight in the solution. This allows the seed to burst and germinate a lot faster than if just soaked in water.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)

How and When to Use

RHIZOTONIC can be used with any type of growing medium and style, and can be used from seed to harvest (always remember to flush before harvest). It can be applied directly to the leaves and a foliar spray, as a pretreatment for all substrate types, or in with the nutrient solution that you feed your plants.

  • Remember to shake the solution well before use.
  • Mix with fresh, filtered water at a rate of 1:250 - eg 40mls to 10 liters.
  • Can be used as a foliar spray up to six times daily. 
  • Can be added to the daily feed every day.

CannaBoost Accelerator

Boost Accelerator is a flowering stimulant that allows you to make the most out of each plant, providing everything your plants need for bigger and denser buds, and an overall bigger yield.

 

Canna feeding chart: cannaboost accelerator

CannaBoost Accelerator provides everything for bigger and denser buds.
 

When used properly, this product will improve basic processes such as photosynthesis, resulting in a shorter internodal space and more compact buds. It does this by boosting the metabolism of your plant. When combined with PK13/14 you can achieve unseen flowering results, no matter which growing system you are using. CANNABOOST offers a key few benefits, including:

  • Improved yield size - This additive stimulates heavier, denser, more compact bud growth which increases the yield weight. 
  • Improved flower ripening - Not only are the yield sizes increased, but the final product is of much better quality. Terpene and trichome production are both boosted, with the terpene profile allowed to reach its full potential thanks to the sugar production boost from the increase in photosynthesis
  • Strengthened immune system - The enhanced energy regulation of the plant means that there is more energy to resist diseases, fungus, mold, and pests. 

How and When to Use

  • CANNABOOST works best when using a dilution of 1:500 (20 ml per 10 liters of water) from the moment that flowers start to form. This can be doubled an or extra flowering boost.
  • The solution will store fine for 4 days in a cool, dry, dark area. 
  • Can be applied as a foliar spray or added to the nutrient feed solution.

PK 13/14

PK 13/14 is a flowering booster designed to fatten up buds, by using it in combination with other products your plant will develop huge amounts of resin and very dense buds, thus improving yields; Everything you want your harvest to be, just make sure you don’t overuse it to avoid nutrient deficiencies!

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
01314

 

As the name might suggest, this is an additive that boosts Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K), both of which play a major role in the flowering of cannabis. Phosphorous (P) plays an important role in energy transfer and the metabolism of cannabis and is vital for the flowering stage if you want to get the fattest, juiciest bids possible. Potassium (K) is vital for good overall plant structure and controls a bunch of the plant’s processes such as the production of sugars, and water transportation. When used in conjunction with CANNABOOST the end result will be a yield with quality and size way above what you are used to. 

How and When to Use

  • Remember to always shake the bottle well before using.
  • CANNA PK 13/14 only needs to be added in a very small window of time. Dissolve 15 ml concentrate per 10 litres of water (1:666) and add to the root zone in the 3rd last week before harvest, for a total of 3 to 6 days. 

3. Organic Fertilizers

Canna also offers a 100% organic line for those who prefer growing organically, this line not only doesn't harm the environment but also provides everything at just the right amounts to avoid harming your plant either by under or overfeeding.

Bio Canna 

Bio Canna is Canna’s 100% organic certified products that can be used in any substrate of your choice, providing everything your plants need and in the right amount to grow fast and healthy.

Bio Flores

Bio Flores is a 100% organic fertilizer designed for the flowering stage, this product provides every nutrient your plant needs to not only develop more buds but also denser flowers while enhancing both the taste and aroma.

Bio Vega

Bio Vega is an organic fertilizer designed for the vegetative stage, providing everything your plant needs to grow healthy, strong, and be able to withstand the weight of the buds once flowering commences while leaving your whole crop deficiency-free due to being 100% organic.

 

Canna feeding chart: bio vega

Bio vega provides everything your plants need for optimal veg growth.
 

Remember that if you provide ideal conditions and good-quality nutrients the buds will grow very dense and can be too heavy for the branches to withstand so this product will allow you to grow your plants without worrying about providing support during flowering.

  • Use nutrient solution within 24hs after mixing.

4. Canna Feeding Schedule For Autoflowers (ml/L)

Now, using any of these products at full strength from the start may be too much for an autoflower so the best way to avoid any kind of problems would be to start with a lower amount, so this table was was designed with 3/4 of the recommended dose, this value may be increased or decreased according to the specific strain and growing environment.

Feeding Schedule For Autoflowers

Also, if you are using one of their pre-amended substrates such as Canna Terra Professional, you should not start feeding from week 1, we recommend starting on week 3-4 of the vegetative stage but if you feel like your plants are hungry you can start earlier.
