Using Canna Hydro (Substra) Vega A&B:
Fill your run-to-waste hydroponic system reservoir with water and add equal amounts of Canna Hydro (Substra) Vega Part A and Canna Hydro (Substra) Vega Part B to the tank to achieve the required strength and mix well. Use 2-4ml/litre (CF of 12-20) of both part A and part B starting with 2ml/litre for small plants and then increasing the dosage to 4ml/litre as the plant gains size and approaches flowering. We recommend using a syringe or beaker for accurate measurement of this product and a CF/EC/PPM meter such as the Bluelab Truncheon to check the nutrient strength. Adjust as necessary. Next, add any additives and boosters you wish to use and again mix well. Adjust the pH of the solution to the required level using pH up or down as necessary. We recommend the use of a pH meter such as the Horticare pH meter to help accurately set the pH to the required level. It is recommended you renew the nutrient solution in your reservoir every 7 days. Canna recommend achieving 10%-20% run-off at each watering with this product.
Both parts of a 2-part nutrient are designed to be used together in equal amounts. Using only part A or part B, or using them in unequal amounts will result in a nutrient solution which is not properly balanced. This will almost certainly lead to your plants suffering from deficiencies.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Manufacturer’s recommended dosage rates are only for vigorously growing plants that are in the peak of health. Slower growing plants and those that are not 100% healthy will require a lower dosage rate.
