Once the coco is buffered (bagged coco comes rebuffed, bricks need to be buffered) make a batch of canna nutrients at 1/4 recommended strength and water the coco and let it drain, then plant the seeds. When the seeds sprout they will use the small bit of nutrients and grow faster. From that beginning you monitor the runoff and adjust the strength of the feed based on the EC in and out.

Then you do not need to worry about calmag, at least not for now anyway. 

I would fill the pot with the Coco and water it to run through starts... using either Canna Start and tap water or just tap water but both PH'd to 5.8-6.0.... Let the pot sit overnight in your grow space and then drop your soaked seed and put a humidity dome ( cut clear plastic bottle) on top and just sit and wait to watch magic happen Smile

@shirley-boi you don’t start mixing nutrients using the EC meter. Just look at the bottle and whatever they tell you to use, only use 1/4 of that amount to beginning. After you mix it take the reading, that’s your base. After about a week of growing measure the EC of the runoff and compare it to the input. Your goal is to have the in/out numbers to be the same but you don’t adjust anything for a while to let the seedling stabilize in it’s new home. If my input EC is +/-0.200 of the output I let it be. If it’s out of that range I adjust until it is back in the zone.
