Magnesium is a mobile element,Magnesium deficiency usually starts in the middle of the plant and spreads to the younger leaves. Leaves turning yellow, or even white, with the veins remaining dark green is the best indicator of Mag deficiency.

Magnesium can be easily absorbed by plants when the PH range of is 5.0-7.0 ,also other factors may reduce or lock-out the mag uptake, such as a permanent humidity, low temperatures, or acid and cold substrates.

Solution:

As Calcium,magnesium deficiency usually appear together,so usually get Cal-Mag supplement

First adjust the PH level:In soil, magnesium is best absorbed by the roots in the 6.0 - 7.0

Train your plants part 1:Bending & Securing Parts of the Plant

Low stress Training(LST) Bend tall stems down and away from the middle of the plant as it grows so the plant takes on a more flat and wide shape. You should start this when the plant is still a seedling,because the young stems will be flexible.

Supercropping- If your plants too tall and difficult to bend,this will be your choice."Soften up" the stem first before bending it at an extreme angle. Supercropping can be very helpful towards wrangling an out-of-control plant, and it has a few other benefits too because it can stress the plant in a "good" way
