bl0nd3 Posted December 9, 2014 Report Share Posted December 9, 2014 (edited) Im not afraid to admit, maths, ratios, percentages etc where never my forte at school, i was all about the English and Grammar (although my posts dont often show it haha) , and wouldn’t even attend maths, so i know basics, but in terms of the instructions on the back of the Canna Coco A & B nutrients, it has left me thinking...What the f**k ....the instructions:Shake bottle well before useFill nutrient reservoir with waterAdd CANNA COCO A & B to the nutrient reservoir with the dilution ratio 1:25 (40 ml A and 40 ml B per 10 litre of water). Add CANNA COCO A to the nutrient reservoir Stir well, then add CANNA Coco B Again, stir well and let mixture stand for some hoursThe EC of Coco dissolved in (tap) water varies between 1.2 - 2.3 mS/cm2 (= the solution EC + the water EC)Recommended pH: 5.5 - 6.2CANNA COCO nutrients can be used for the vegetative and generative phase contrary to other (CANNA) nutrientsDo not mix A & B concentrate directly; Insoluble combinations will occur which the plant cannot absorbStore closed in a dark and frost-proof place (UV light breaks down iron chelates in the nutrient)Keep out of reach of childrenMy questions in red, and highlighted the confusing stuff in blueShake bottle well before use Easy doneFill nutrient reservoir with water What reservoir are they referring to? where will i find this reservoir? im guessing its the 2nd lid?Add CANNA COCO A & B to the nutrient reservoir with the dilution ratio 1:25 (40 ml A and 40 ml B per 10 litre of water). What?? who is mixing 10 litres of solution at once? Wouldnt It make more sense if they just simply listed it as ...mls per litre - I dont plan on drowning them Add CANNA COCO A to the nutrient reservoir Stir well , then add CANNA Coco B Again, (i dont remember adding it previously, so why would i be adding it again? ... JK i get that part ) stir well and let mixture stand for some hours (Is this neccessary?)The EC of Coco dissolved in (tap) water varies between 1.2 - 2.3 mS/cm2 (= the solution EC + the water EC) What? ... what is EC, what is mS/cm? What is this tomfoolery they speak of?Recommended pH: 5.5 - 6.2 (Yay, something i understand, measure the PH, adjust with PH up or down if required) So i add canna A to (the reservoir, but im going to call it a jug, as it makes sense to me) I add .....MLs of canna coco A to a 1 litre jug of water, i stir it, then iA ) Mix Canna Coco B in a seperate jug with 1 litre of water, then combine the two, to make 2 litres of water orB ) i add the Canna Coco B directly/undiluted to the Canna Coco A & water mix?They made it difficult by stating the two cant be mixed together, (Do not mix A & B concentrate directly; Insoluble combinations will occur which the plant cannot absorb) YET they describe to add the Canna Coco B undiluted to the Canna Coco A.... doent this contradict itself? Iv found the instructions so vague and shitty, theres no additional information on their site... and so far i have just used two plastic cups,both with 150mls of water each, one with canna coco A, one with canna coco B (iv used 2mls per 150mls of water as the plants are seedlings)then i water the seedlings with a dropper 3mls of mixed canna coco A, then half hour later add 3mls of canna coco B. I know this isnt the way to do it, but i really have no idea, so in simplest terms could someone provide the measurements required for 1 litre of water, and can i store it for a long period of time? My plants are wet enough, i dont want to drown them. Ill prob use a misting bottle the get even coverage on the rockwool.
