Process of production Canna Soil

The production process of Canna substrates and soils

Canna is known for its attention to detail at every stage of the production of its substrates. The process begins with the careful selection of raw materials, which are tested for quality and chemical composition to ensure the highest standard. They then go through various stages of processing and mixing, often with the addition of special nutrients or microorganisms that are intended to improve the physical and chemical properties of the substrate.

Further production steps often include pH and humidity control, as well as laboratory testing to ensure the product is free from pathogens and other harmful substances. All this takes place in controlled conditions, often using the latest technologies, such as spectral analyzers or advanced irrigation systems.

After production, each batch of substrate is subjected to rigorous quality tests before it is released on the market. Canna strives to continually improve its products, so each batch of substrate is carefully analyzed to understand what improvements can be made in future versions.

Ultimately, this careful and advanced production process ensures that Canna substrates are not only highly effective, but also safe for plants and the environment.

Canna Bio Terra Plus - Certified organic soil 

Canna Bio Terra Plus is an organic substrate that uses the highest quality raw materials, including excellent "white" peat with an acidic pH. This peat comes from unique locations and has a light structure with elongated fibers, which promotes healthy plant growth. The tree bark used in this product has natural antifungal and bactericidal properties, which significantly improves the quality of the substrate and minimizes the risk of diseases.

Peat and bark are not the only components of this advanced substrate. Bio Terra Plus also contains high-quality coconut fiber, known as CANNA COCO. This mixture is pre-fertilized with certified organic ingredients such as bone meal, bat guano and various trace elements. Moreover, it contains beneficial soil bacteria, which creates a beneficial symbiosis for plants, leading to fewer soil diseases, more effective absorption of nutrients and better plant development.

Bio Terra Plus also has the ability to automatically regulate the amount of fertilizer used. This means that this medium adapts to the amount of nutrients fed: if you give less, more pre-fertilizer will be used, and if you give more, the need for pre-fertilizer will decrease. Thanks to this, the risk of making a mistake when feeding plants is minimal. The fertilizer is slowly released from the organic complexes, allowing constant availability of nutrients.

Bio Terra Plus is a highly reliable substrate that can adjust the fertilization schedule as needed, making it an ideal choice for both beginners and advanced growers who are looking for a sustainable and highest quality product.

The substrate is available in 25 and 50 liter bags.
