CALMAG AGENT

CALMAG AGENT

Optimises your base water for the best results on coco substrate(s)

With varying water quality throughout the USA and more and more people using reversed osmosis water on COCO substrates, we have created the solution to your soft water problems: CANNA CALMAG AGENT.

Our agent ensures a balanced amount of calcium and magnesium specially designed to add to your nutrients. This product will increase the EC value of the water you use, stabilizing the water for your plant to feed on. It makes water harder and will create the best base water for your plant to be able to take in all the nutrients it needs, to grow healthy and strong on a coco substrate.

 

Benefits of CANNA CALMAG AGENT:

  • Perfected for use on CANNA COCO substrate
  • Stabilizes water pH
  • Fewer deficiencies in calcium and magnesium
  • Enhanced nutrient uptake
  • Stronger plants
  • Promotes better quality flowers
  • Increases the EC of your water

Let’s take a closer look at water

There are four different types of water quality:

SOFT WATER

EC: below 0.4
Lack of calcium and magnesium

NORMAL WATER

EC: between 0.4 & 0.7
Right amount of calcium and magnesium

HARD WATER

EC: 0.8 or higher
Excessive amount of calcium and magnesium

BAD WATER

EC: 0.8 or higher
Excessive amount of sodium and chloride

SOFT WATER

CANNA CALMAG AGENT can be used to increase the water hardness.

NORMAL WATER

Right amount of calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate for water hardness and a stable pH. All CANNA products are designed to work best with this type of water. No need to use CANNA CALMAG AGENT.

HARD WATER

Excessive amount of calcium and magnesium. Use a reverse osmosis filter and then mix your hard water with the R.O. water until you reach an EC level of 0.4. Or, more easily, you can use your R.O. water with CANNA CALMAG AGENT.

BAD WATER

Excessive amount of sodium and chloride. Sodium and chloride block the uptake of nutrients and can even become toxic to your plants. With a reverse osmosis filter, you can remove both of these elements. Then use your R.O. water with CANNA CALMAG AGENT.

Mixing CANNA CALMAG AGENT

  • Shake well before use.
  • Fill nutrient reservoir with water of room temperature (64-72 °F).
  • Mix nutrients and additives to be used such as CANNABOOST, RHIZOTONIC, CANNAZYM and, or PK13/14 into the RO or soft water.
  • Then add the CANNA CALMAG AGENT following these guidelines:
  • Dosage: Depending on your water quality, softness and target plant, use 0.07 - 0.17 fl oz/gal (5 - 10 ml / 10 liters).
  • Adjust your EC to the desired level.
  • The nutrient solution can be applied directly after mixing but wait 24-48 hours before doing any pH adjustment to allow correct buffering of your solution (pH will drop then rise gradually over 48 hour period- 24 hour min).
  • Keep in mind that a stable pH is also temperature dependent.

Caution: It is not recommended to use pH up (+) since the pH of the solution will gradually rise over a 24-48 hour period. Be sure to wait until making any pH adjustments.
