Iron is a necessary nutrient that help plants grow tissues.
Iron is needed to help enzymes function well or for chlorophyll to synthesize properly.
Signs of Iron Deficiency
- Yellowing outside the veins of the plants leaf,veins remain green
- Young leaves show yellow from opposite tips of the leaf
- Slow growth
- Bigger leaves will start to yellow between the veins of the leaf
- Leaves will start to show signs of burnt tips
How to know your plants if overwatering or underwatering? Is there some way to distinguish and avoid this problems? Yes of course.
The difference between overwatering and underwatering:
- The soil is constantly wet
- The leaves of the plant turn brown and curl down
Zinc is responsible for enzyme function and chlorophyll in the plants.
Zinc affects the strength of all parts of the plant such as the stems, branches, stalks and leaves.
Signs of Zinc Deficiency
Yellowing between the veins, in new and young leaves
New Leafs are small and thin and appear twisted
New leaf growth is pale yellow-green
Stems fail to grow and stretch leaving minute leafs
The tips of leaves appear burnt
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.
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
Calcium is important for the plant's growth,it helps provide structure to the plant,especially under LED growing.
Signs of Calcium Deficiency
Upper leaf issues show spotting first
Lower leaves curl and twist
Yellow, brown spots appear on leaf and tips
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
Pros and Cons of different grow light
Light is very important for every plants, someone would like to use HPS, someone would like the natural sun light or led grow lights, so what the difference?
Pros of HPS Grow Lights
- HPS are the most efficient type of grow light
- HPS grow lights are the most efficient and the best for the flowering stage.
How to Get Better Germination Rates
Well begun is half done, better germination rates will help get more yields, so how to increase the germinations rate? there are several things you need to pay attention
Moisture: keeping the seeds moist, be careful don’t soak them, if you do please be sure don’t leave the seeds soaking in water over 32 hours.
Peace: when germinate your seed, leave them alone until they aprout
