As a major component of chlorophyll, nitrogen is essential for every plant’s basic nutrition. Symptoms of nitrogen deficiency include poor plant growth and yellow or light green leaves. Have your soil tested for nitrogen levels and regularly fertilize your plants with compost or manure.
Just as people need calcium for strong bones, plants need calcium for strong cell walls. A calcium deficiency can stunt root growth as well as a protective mucus that protects roots from disease. Factors such as humidity, air movement, and soil pH affect the amount of calcium your plants receive.
Magnesium enables a plant’s chlorophyll to capture energy from sunlight. Without magnesium, a plant cannot perform photosynthesis. Poor soil quality is a common cause of magnesium deficiency, resulting in yellowing between leaf veins and premature aging.
