Magnesium is considered a secondary nutrient for plants, meaning it is an essential element needed in moderate quantities. Without proper amounts of magnesium, plants can experience major symptoms.

Common Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium aids in the absorption and transportation of key nutrients, such as Phosphorous. This is necessary for phosphate metabolism and is also used to stabilize the cell membrane and metabolize carbohydrates. It is important to take note of the pH levels in correlation to Magnesium. If your pH level is too acidic, the Magnesium will not be as easily absorbed by the plant.

Interveinal Chlorosis


Interveinal Chlorosis is the yellowing of the tissues between the veins of a leaf due to a lack of chlorophyll production and activity. The veins of the leaves will keep their green color, while the rest of the leaf yellows, hence the name “interveinal”.

Leaf Necrosis


Leaf Necrosis is not a disease itself, but a symptom of a disease or other distress the plant is experiencing. Necrosis means death of cells or tissues, and can appear from dark watery looking spots, or dry papery spots on the leaves, ranging in color from tan to a purple color.
