Magnesium Deficiency in Cannabis Plant: How to Spot?
Welcome to the ASHARIO CANNABIS blog, a haven for cannabis enthusiasts and consumers alike. In this post, we'll be discussing how to identify magnesium deficiency in cannabis plants, exploring the underlying reasons, and providing solutions to ensure the optimal growth and health of your plants.
Identifying Magnesium Deficiency in Cannabis Plant
There are two primary symptoms of magnesium deficiency in cannabis plants:
- Chlorosis: This refers to the yellowing of the leaves, often starting from the edges and moving inwards. The veins of the leaves may remain green, creating an interveinal chlorosis pattern. It is essential to address this issue as chlorosis can lead to the leaves' eventual death, thereby reducing the plant's ability to photosynthesize.
- Inadequate Plant Growth: Magnesium deficiency may also lead to stunted plant growth. This is due to the significant role that magnesium plays in essential cellular processes, such as photosynthesis and respiration.
What’s The Underlying Reason?
Assuming that you're providing necessary nutrients, there are two main reasons behind magnesium deficiency in cannabis plants:
- Incorrect Supplements: It is possible that you've provided supplements with an inadequate level of magnesium.
- Improper Balancing of Nutrients: Sometimes, excess levels of other nutrients, particularly calcium and potassium, can block magnesium absorption.
How to Easily Prevent Magnesium Deficiency in Cannabis?
Here are some quick tips for fixing magnesium deficiency in your CBD plant:
- Flushing with pH-balanced Water: Flush your growing medium with pH-balanced water to cleanse and reset the nutrient levels.
- Using the Right Nutrient Solutions: Ensure that you’re using nutrient solutions, like Cal-Mag, that have appropriate magnesium levels for your cannabis plants.
- The Nature of the Soil: Choose soil with a good balance of nutrients and minerals. It's important to be aware of your soil's composition to make adjustments accordingly.
- Using Epsom Salt Water: Epsom salts can be an effective way to supplement magnesium levels. Lightly spray a solution of Epsom salt and water directly onto the affected leaves.
- Investing in the Right Growth Medium: Choose a growth medium that already contains the essential nutrients and minerals that your plant needs.
