There are lots of high quality, ready-made base nutrient formulations out there that have been optimized for certain substrates and different stages of the plants’ life. Despite this, deficiencies can and often do, still, occur. Canna Mononutrients only contain one nutrient element in each bottle (except for the Trace Mix). This allows the grower to identify and treat a deficiency in one particular nutrient without having to feed more of everything which could just cause even more problems. The range includes just some of the following single nutrient supplements: Nitrogen (N 17%), Phosphorous (P 16%), Potassium (K 17%) & Trace Mix.
If your plants are unfortunate enough to have developed a nutrient deficiency, the first thing that it is important to do is identify the particular nutrient that the plant is short of and then obtain the appropriate Canna Mononutrient to correct it.
Here is a very brief guide to identifying deficiencies:
Nitrogen: Yellowing leaves starting with the lower leaves, purple stalks, leaves eventually fall off
Phosphorous: Plant becomes dark green, slow growth, necrotic (dying/dead) patches on leaves which eventually curl, shrivel and fall off.
Potassium: Grey edges on young leaves, rusty dead spots appear, uneven yellowing particularly the veins.
Calcium: Beige spots appear on lower leaves at first. The spots turn darker brown in the middle with a sharp edge.
Magnesium: Hazy, rusty spots appear particularly in-between the veins on the leaves.
Iron: Leaves yellow in-between the veins, particularly on the younger leaves but spreading down the plant. Eventually, the leaves turn almost white.
Trace Elements: The Canna Mononutrients Trace Mix contains and will treat deficiencies in the following micronutrients:
0.06% Iron (Fe) DTPA & EDDHA
0.07% Molybdenum (Mo)
0.06% Copper (Cu)
0.6% Manganese (Mn)
0.3% Boron (B)
0.3% Zinc (Zn)
Iron – Deficiency manifests as described above
Molybdenum – This enables the plant to metabolize Nitrogen. A lack of this looks similar to Nitrogen deficiency.
Copper – A deficiency in this causes weak stems with some dieback, yellowing of leaves, stunted growth.
Manganese – Interveinal chlorosis, brown dead spots on leaves. Early leaf drop.
Boron – Young growth is stunted, sometimes there is a reddish discolouration of leaves
Zinc – The most obvious signs of a boron deficiency are very short internodes and small leaves.
After identifying the deficiency and obtaining the right Mononutrient to deal with it, next “flush” through the medium with lots of plain water in order to wash out any old nutrient held within it. This gives a “clean sheet” to start from again.
Make up a fresh nutrient solution with a quality nutrient. Add the appropriate Canna Mononutrient at the specified rate on the bottle and stir it well.
Store in a dark place and protected from frost. if the product comes into contact with the eyes, rinse with water. Keep out of reach of children.

Brought to you by the great minds at Canna, these single elements are perfect when your plant has a specific need or deficiency.
There are 7 varieties, each contains 1 Litre.
Canna Calcium is ideal for stabilizing plant growth and health. Canna Mono Calcium influences growth hormones and regulates the transport of water and nutrients in the plant. In addition, liquid calcium can be directly absorbed by the plant, so that the cell tissue is immediately strengthened. Canna Calcium can be used as calcium fertilizer to replenish a deficiency or as a supplementary nutrient to stimulate growth.
Canna Iron aids metabolic functions within the plant, helping to ensure maximum uptake of nutrients. It plays a major part in photosynthesis and a large part in the production of chlorophyll. Furthermore, it has a big influence on physiological processes and on the energy system. A perfectly balanced product is suitable for mixing with all nutrients and ideal when used to correct iron deficiencies.
Canna Magnesium is directly absorbed by the plant and therefore the effects can be seen relatively soon. Essential for photosynthesis, magnesium is an essential atom in chlorophyll. Furthermore, magnesium influences other pigments and physiological processes. This makes it an essential element in the development of the plant.
Canna Phosphorus influences the plant’s blooming phase and is easily absorbed by the plant due to its liquid form. Canna Mono Phosphorus is the perfect product for stimulating the blooming phase or correcting phosphorus deficiencies. It is an essential element that plays a major part in the plant’s energy system.
Canna Potassium is used to improve the quality and quantity of blooms. This organic product makes the cell wall stronger and in addition, increases the resistance. Canna Potassium improves water management and the transport of water and nutrients in the plant. This should not be mixed with magnesium or nutrient mixes containing calcium. Best used to correct plant deficiencies.
Canna Nitrogen stimulates the growth of your plants. It plays a major part in the production of proteins and in energy metabolism, which is essential for the development of the plant. It can be used for nitrogen deficiency and as a supplementary nutrient to stimulate growth. Canna Nitrogen is also an essential nutritional element for improving juice production. The liquid can be directly absorbed by the plant and improves the vegetative growth.
Canna Trace Mix consists of several trace elements that are essential for the development of your plants. These trace elements are used for several enzyme systems and therefore have an influence on the development of plants. Trace Mix is a mineral fertilizer, which is extremely suitable as a supplementary nutrient to stimulate the growth and bloom of plants. Besides that, it can serve to reduce the deficiency of trace elements.
“Good stuff use sparingly for nitrogen difficiancy. Will last you years. Be careful not to overdose
Also other nutrients available as single components.”
“Excellent product, performed just as expected, very handy having the see-through strip on the side to check how much is left.”
“Great product made a big difference with my bushes that had a huge nitrogen deficiency would highly recommend“
CANNA is the producer of nutrients and growing mediums for the cultivation of fast-growing plants. Ever since the founding in the early 90s, all products are scientifically tested first, before putting on the market. But even before the company was established, the founders were already scientifically pioneering with plants. CANNA holds the complete production chain in its own hands. From development to research, via marketing and sales to the unique environmentally friendly production line. CANNA also has its own logistics department and of course a laboratory. Here passionate scientists unravel the secrets of nature. The passion for plants is shown in Canna’s quality products. Years of intensive research precede the market launch of each product. CANNA was awarded the first prize for its revolutionary plant products at a prestigious annual expo in Holland for hydroponic and potting mix growers. They are Dutch experts and internationally recognized worldwide leaders in intelligent plant technologies for cultivating your favorite plants in cocoponics, hydroponics, and potting mix.
