Signs of Nutrient Deficiencies in Cannabis
We're well on our way into summer, so if you're growing cannabis with the mighty and bright sunlight, your plants are probably taking off in growth! One of our favorite things to do is admire the healthy green leaves basking in the sun. Sing to them, clean them and of course, feed and trim the lovely plants.
In past blog posts, we've shared some vegetative growing tips and things like plant anatomy, and how to establish a mother plant for cloning. Remember the primary formula for a cannabis plant's favorite macro nutrients: 'N-P-K' for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium? All plants require nitrogen for healthy growth and reproduction. More importantly, plants use nitrogen for photosynthesis. Phosphorus helps a plant convert other nutrients into usable building blocks with which to grow. The science behind the interaction of potassium and plants is somewhat of a mystery, but it is known that it improves how well a plant grows and produces. (You'll notice that cannabis flowering nutrients usually have a higher potassium level.) Today we'd like to share this truly awesome guide from Alchimia to signs of nutrient deficiency in marijuana. Check it out, print it, or use it as a reference! Many thanks to the cannabis community for such great information provided.
