Diseases & Deficiencies and how do you recognize them
The most common mistakes that, especially hobby breeders make, when it comes to breeding, is misinterpreting diseases for shortages. People see discoloration in a leaf or brown spots and then immediately think of diseases while this can also be a shortage of some nutrients. It is a fact recognizing diseases and / or shortages is not really easy. Some shortages are expressed in a way that can point a lot at other shortages or illnesses.
It is clear that recognizing diseases and / or shortages in the correct way is of great importance for the final yield.
The blog category diseases and shortages you should see as a kind of guide where the causes and symptoms of too many or too few nutrients for your plant are discussed, the consequences of these problems and of course the solutions. We have produced this guide in collaboration with our research centers. Of course we hope that you do not have to use this guide often, but that it provides helpful tips should you ever need help.
