Do plants need a lot of nitrogen?



  1. 0 Votes

    Nitrogen, phosphorus, and Potassum are essential nutrients for plant growth.  Without sufficient nitrogen, a plant’s growth will be stunted as the plant will turn brittle and yellow.  An excess of nitrogen will result in the plant growing an abundance of leaves which are weak and potentially toxic if consumed.  With that said, most of the nitrogen plants receive comes from the soil, decomposing foilage, and the atmosphere.  Though rain does produce nitrogen its level is not sufficient and varies.   Alas, as with all things there lies a balance as to how much nitrogen a plant needs.  Monitor the plant’s appearance and health to see if it is recieving enough nitrogen.
