CANNA Terra Seed Mix
The homogeneous, stable structure of Terra Seed Mix is great for retaining water, which gives the seeds the best chance of germinating correctly
CANNA Terra Seed Mix is also particularly suitable for use when rooting cuttings
Sowing in Terra Seed Mix
Sow the seeds 2-3 mm deep (max. 5 mm) in the CANNA Terra Seed Mix in a container that has a maximum diameter of 5 cm. Spray the growing medium regularly. Seedlings first use the energy reserves that are available in the seed.
Keep the seeds warm (20-25°C) and moist using a propagator for example. Remove the propagator’s lid as soon as the seedlings emerge from the ground.
The young seedlings are very delicate so do not place them in direct sunlight or close to a powerful growing lamp since this may burn them. Give the young plants a feeding solution that has a low EC (1.2) and add CANNA Rhizotonic to strengthen the roots. The seedlings are ready to be potted out when they have developed two or three leaves.
Even though it is possible to sow seeds directly in the ground and let them germinate there, the success rate is appreciably lower than when this process is carried out inside. Ground temperatures outside do not provide ideal circumstances for germinating seeds. Place the seedlings that have emerged on a spot where they can acclimatise to the conditions outside, on the balcony, for example.
Begin by germinating inside. Place the seedlings that have emerged on a spot where they can acclimatise to the conditions outside.
Cuttings and further
Once the plants have developed a good root system in the CANNA Terra Seed Mix they can be transferred to a growing medium such as CANNA Terra Professional Plus, CANNA Coco Professional Plus, CANNA Aqua Clay Pebbles or rock wool where they will be cultivated to maturity. CANNA’s range of nutrients includes the best specific combinations for each of these growing mediums that will guarantee an optimum harvest.

CANNA Terra Professional Plus
Advantages of CANNA Terra Professional Plus
CANNA Terra Professional Plus is composed of airy peat moss and types of tree bark that have an antiseptic action. They promote exceptional root development and the formation of thicker stems.
Also, faster metabolism combined with low sickness rates ensure an increased production.
The medium is pH-adjusted for long-term control with a lime charge large enough to last an entire cycle. It has a mineral-nutrient starter charge that adjusts the initial level of nutrients up to a good beginning charge, correcting the ratios to work perfectly with CANNA TERRA nutrients.
The special structure provides optimum amounts of air and water in the medium.
CANNA Terra Professional Plus contains trace elements and chelates, which protect the plants during growth.
Loosen the CANNA Terra Professional Plus and fill the pots, compressing the medium slightly. Add water until a little begins to drain through and then place the plant in the CANNA Terra Professional Plus.
Depending on the size of the pot, growing conditions and the plant’s growth stage, adjust the amount of water given to the needs of the plant in question. Under normal conditions, adult plants evaporate 4-6 litres of moisture a day, per m2.
For larger plants, use 5 litre pots or larger. The larger the pot, the more constant the root environment will be. Make sure that there’s sufficient drainage; you may want to place a thin layer of hydro-granules in the bottom of the pot for air and drainage.

A base substrate for a personalized grow
What is Light·Mix?
If you want more control, Light·Mix provides the ideal foundation for encouraging vigorous growth in seedlings, young plants and cuttings – right from the beginning.
It gets the vital micro activity going as the water works with the soil, producing organic catalysts that rapidly develop root structures.
Light·Mix has also been specially blended to ensure optimal drainage throughout – an essential property if you use automatic irrigation systems.
The pH and EC values
Biobizz products only contain natural organic elements rather than mineral salts such as magnesium or sulfates that you might find in synthetic fertilizers. This gives Light·Mix a medium Electrical Conductivity (EC) value. And while its organic elements are impossible to measure, they do have a self-regulating system, which helps maintain the pH values at the correct level.
How to use it?
When using Light·Mix you can apply larger nutrient doses to any kind of plant, including heavy feeders, without the risk of overloading the soil and causing a nutrient burn – indicated by yellowing and crunchy, burnt tips on the leaves.
With automatic watering it’s important that the water properly infiltrates the substrate, or this can become too wet and cause mould to form.
A perfectly balanced and easy to use substrate
What is All·Mix?
All·Mix literally does it all for you – creating the optimum environment for plants to flourish throughout the year.
This heavily pre-fertilized substrate mixture emulates a rich outdoor soil with a full micro active ecosystem. It’s been designed to have enough nutrient-fuelled power to sustain lush growth for a couple of weeks, without any need to add any extra fertilizer.
The pH and EC values
Biobizz products only contain natural organic elements rather than mineral salts such as magnesium or sulfates that you might find in synthetic fertilizers. This gives All·Mix a high Electrical Conductivity (EC) value. And while its organic elements are impossible to measure, they do have a self-regulating system, which helps maintain the pH values at the correct level.
How to use it?
When using All·Mix for the first time, moisten it with water and leave to stand for 36 hours. This gives the Pre·Mix active fertilizer and microorganisms inside the substrate a chance to start working their magic before the plants goes in.
Keep the soil slightly warm at all times – if it’s too cool, the microbial activity slows down, which makes it more difficult for the plants to grow. You also want to allow the soil to dry out between each watering. Because, as the All·Mix substrate dries out, fresh air gets in, which helps the soil to breathe.
Biobizz Worm humus
Nature’s way to enhance substrates
What is Worm·Humus?
Worm humus, also known as vermicast, is the final product of decomposed material excreted by the king of the soil – the earthworm.
This high quality organic compost is made from 100% pure, organic worm castings that have been stringently lab-tested to ensure they don’t contain any farmyard waste, landfill waste or compost.
Packed with water-soluble nutrients and bacteria, our Worm·Humus™ is a very nutritious organic fertilizer and excellent all-round soil improver.
Quality you can trust
The earthworms that make our 100% organic humus are kept on a highly controlled and nutritious diet of rock minerals and organic potato peelings.
Combine the worm castings they produce with the natural microbes in the ground, and you end up with the best quality worm humus you can buy.
How to use it?
Worm·Humus is perfect for refreshing All·Mix, adding to substrate mixtures already in use, or preparing the garden subsoil.
The ideal proportions to aim for are a blend of 10 – 15% Worm·Humus to 85 – 90% substrate.
