Magnesium (Mg) is the central atom in chlorophyll and as such, has an undeniable role in the process of plant photosynthesis. Without magnesium, chlorophyll cannot capture sun energy and therefor is required to give the plant its green colour.
Magnesium is also used by plants for the metabolism of carbohydrates and for a stabilized cellular membrane structure. In an optimal culture, it is important that the plant may have sufficient magnesium.
A lack of magnesium results in that the plant uses the chloroplasts from the older leaves (in the middle of the plant) and transports them to the young leaves. This manifests in yellow brown spots between the veins of the older leaves.
Possible causes of inhibited magnesium up-take
-A disturbed PH level.
-Too much iron, potassium, ammonium or calcium content of the tap water (or even precedent from low quality nutrients).
