Nutrient Knowledge: Marijuana Plant Nutrient Deficiency & Excess Diagram (Reference Chart)

Grow Your Own

The beauty of living in a legal state, whether it be medical or recreational (or both!) – is the ability to grow your own cannabis in the comfort of your own residence. This allows the ability to have your own crop and avoid having to go to a dispensary to pick up your cannabis. A lot of dispensaries you go to are also growing at such a large scale, or commercial level that they typically do not have the staff or workforce to baby a set of plants like you would in your legal grow.

Growing for your own can be easy, but to produce a quality crop it most definitely required knowledge, time and patience. A common problem with growing cannabis for yourself is knowing how to diagnose what may be going wrong with your plants. From yellowing or curling leaves to stunted growth and beyond it may be hard to diagnose if you do not have much experience or even if you do.

Nutrient Problems

Problems can persist with your grow depending on the nutrient deficiency or excess in your regimen, but it can be pretty straightforward on how to get back on track with the proper resources.  Typically, those problems can be easily diagnosed using these charts I have referenced for you from master growers around the world.

One of my favorite master growers, Jorge Cervantes, provided the first chart we have used to reference deficiencies in our cultivation. We also swear by his book Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower’s Bible, which you can buy on Amazon here.

Nutrient Charts

My favorite diagram to use breaks down excess nutrients as well as nutrient deficiency primary nutrients, secondary nutrients and also micronutrients elements:

These other two charts are similar, but break it down by the looks of your leaves in particular to show the deficiency and abundance of elements:

Similar chart, broken down by mobile and immobile nutrients:
