Are your plants getting enough nutrients? Identifying symptoms and solutions!


Small indoor growers often struggle with nutrient deficiency. While nutrients are small, their impact on an indoor farm is enormous. This article will explain the basics of nutrients, nutrient deficiencies, and how to spot and treat nutrient deficiencies.

Identifying nutrient deficiencies

Identifying nutrient deficiencies is difficult. Farmers need to be aware of the major plant nutrients to spot symptoms unique to each nutrient. We’ll get into specific nutrient deficiency symptoms later in this post, but generally speaking, there are a few major symptoms for which to watch:

  • Stunted plant growth

  • “Burned” leaves or leaf tips

  • Chlorosis (loss of green coloration)

  • Necrosis
