Root Growth

What may look like a nutrient deficiency is generally caused by the inability of the plant’s roots to generate new root tips to absorb nutrients. The lack of cell division in the root tips is a result of a hormone imbalance caused by insufficient amounts of two key plant growth hormones ─ auxin and cytokinin.

Because most nutrients are absorbed by new root tip tissue or root hairs, it is important to help a plant maintain a healthy hormone balance to maintain continuous root tip growth. Without adequate root growth the plant will not be able to absorb sufficient nutrients, even in very fertile soil conditions.
