  • Plants Need Minerals
    • Elements: Nitrogen- amino acids, proteins
      • Phosphorus-DNA-genetic code, cell membranes
        • Potassium- enzyme action-photosynthesi-s/respiration
          • Magnesium-chlorophyll-photosynthesi-s
    • Nitrates- make proteins, cell growth
      • Lack- poor growth, yellow leaves
    • Phosphates- respiration and growth
      • Lack- poor root growth, discoloured leaves
    • Potassium- respiration and photosynthesi-s
      • Lack- poor flower/root growth, discoloured leaves
    • Magnesium- photosynthesi-s
      • Lack- yellow leaves
