Do plants use nitrogen as much as they use carbon?

    No, there is always more carbon than nitrogen in organic matter. There is a specific ratio to show how much more carbon than nitrogen any given plant has (the “C:N” ratio). For instance, if the ratio is 20:1, it means a plant has 20 grams of carbon for every gram of nitrogen. Nitrogen is still very important to plant health, however, and a very high C:N ratio can mean a plant is nutrient-deprived.
