Symtoms at the Top of the Plant - on New Growth

The symptoms at the top of the plant can be harder to identify because we have six nutrient/minerals that cause easy to spot issues here. While most of them have characteristics that look somewhat alike, we will focus on the characteristics that are only found with each nutrient/mineral deficiency. We hope this will help you move quicker to correct your issue.


Keep in mind, everything listed here is for new growth or top of the plants only. If you see these issues on the mid-plant or older growth regions, this is not the correct area to look for your issue.

  • Chlorosis or yellowing of the leaves.
  • Tan or brown colored flecking or speckling of the leaves.
