What are the 16 essential nutrients that plant uses?

Nutrient deficiency occurs when a plant lacks sufficient quantity of an essential nutrient required for growth. Without sufficient essential nutrients, plants will not grow well and show various symptoms to express the deficiency. Canna's Mono Trace Mix consists of several trace elements that are essential for the development of your plants.

Essential Nutrients
Plants obtain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from water, air and sunlight, to make food for growth. They also require the following for healthy growth:

Macronutrients

Namely: Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, calcium and magnesium. These are required by plants in relatively large amounts.

Micronutrients, also known as trace or minor elements
Namely: Copper, manganese, zinc, iron, boron and molybdenum. These are required by plants in smaller quantities.

• Primary nutrients, also known as macronutrients, are those usually required in the largest amounts. They are carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and potassium.
• Secondary nutrients are those usually needed in moderate amounts compared to the primary essential nutrients. The secondary nutrients are calcium, magnesium, and sulfur.
• Micro- or trace nutrients are required in tiny amounts compared to primary or secondary nutrients. Micronutrients are boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, & zinc.
