Organized for seeds & seedlings

How to Cannakan®

Our systems provide the perfect environment by providing humidity, oxygen and heat. Promoting higher seed germination & growth success.

Cannakan® labeled partitions allow an organized and efficient approach to germinating & growing a variety of seeds, seedlings and propagate plant clippings in one easy to use, compact system.

Section 1

Step 1

A. Place seeds in the partitioned strainer using the HUGGERS™ cupped seed tweezers. Record seed placement by referencing the partition symbol indicator.

B. Fill outer container to below the “max fill indicator” with distilled water.

*Optional: add 1:10 hydrogen peroxide to water

C. Place inner strainer with partitioned seeds into the outer container allowing the strainer to float and self sink when using a filter & allowing the seeds to float.

D. Close the lid on the container to block out light and keep in heat.
Place the closed container on a heat pad at approx. 75°- 80°f for 18-24 hrs.

*NOTE: The tray version has a clear lid option for seeds that require light.

Step 2

A. Uncover and lightly tap any remaining floating seeds with either end of the HUGGERS™ cupped seed tweezers so that the seeds sink and settle at the bottom of the strainer. Seeds will sink indicating they are both, viable and have absorbed enough water to begin germinating. Leaving seeds in the water for more than the recommended 18-24 hrs could result in a lack of oxygen and causing seeds to “drown”.

1. B

With the KAN™ or TRā™ open, remove the inner strainer(s) with partitioned seeds and place into the system's lid to collect any excess of draining water from the strainer. (KAN: flip lid upside down)

Examine your seeds at this time.

2. B

With the inner partition(s)/strainers out. Discard existing water from the outer container body.
TRā - drain water by removing side drain plug. Discard remaining water. Replace plug. BOTH SYSTEMS: Refill with fresh distilled water only filling to the“ Minimum fill" indicator (KAN™) or bottom of drain hole TRā™.

Note:
You may have seeds that have already began to germinate. Remove and plant any seeds with 1/4” to 1/2” taproot using the HUGGERS™ cupped seed tweezers.
TRā System
* Only the tray system has a drain plug for removing existing water
* Only the tray system has a drain plug for removing draining water

Removing drain plug from : TRā™.

Insert the dibber (tabbed end) of the Huggers™ cupped seed tweezers and turn counter clockwise to remove the drain plug from the TRā.

Step 2 continued

C. Place inner strainer with partitioned seeds back into the outer container.

NOTE: When not soaking seeds, the water level should be just below the underside of the strainer. Do not fill above the "minimum fill" indicator. (circled in picture) Leave a small air gap between the strainer and the water surface.
If water is coming through the top of the strainer, remove some water.

return KAN and germinating seeds to heat pad

D. Cover and return to heat pad. Close the lid on the container to block out light and keep in heat and humidity. Keep the closed container on a heat pad at approx. 75°- 80°f for best results. It is not recommended to exceed 85°f for most seeds.

*NOTE: You should notice condensation on the bottom side of the lid when opening within an hour or two. This is how you know it is working.

Over the next few days (typically less than 2 days) remove and plant seeds with a taproot 1/4” - 1/2” in length.
