Iron Deficiency

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
  • Eventually, leaf will fall off
  • Thin bud development


1.) Adjust pH to Correct Range

In soil, iron is best absorbed by the roots in the 6.0 - 6.5 pH range

In coco coir or hydro, iron is best absorbed by the roots in the 5.5 - 6.5 pH range

2)most plants growers don't need to add more iron in response to an iron deficiencyusually cal-mag supplement contains iron,so do not overdoes.

3)Give proper water schedule,do not over watered ,the root system is important for plants to recover from iron deficiency.
