What’s wrong with my plant &&how can I fix or treat ASAP!? Looks like it’s dying

Can anybody please help me in identifying the problem and figuring out a solution ASAP? Idk what’s wrong with it or what to do.

Your problem is…Magnesium (Mg)

Magnesium (Mg) - Micronutrient and Mobile Element

I’m posting a couple of pic’s to show you why…



Magnesium helps supports healthy veins while keeping a healthy leaf production and its
structure. Magnesium is significant for chlorophyll-production and enzyme break downs.
Magnesium which must be present in relatively large quantities for the plant to survive,
but yet not to much to where it will cause the plant to show a toxicity.

Magnesium is one of the easiest deficiencies to tell… the green veins along with the
yellowness of the entire surrounding leave is a dead giveaway, but sometimes that’s not
always the case here. In case you have one of those where it doesn’t show the green veins,
sometimes leaf tips and edges may discolor and curl upward. The growing tips can turn lime
green when the deficiency progresses to the top of the plant. The edges will feel like dry
and crispy and usually affects the lower leaves in younger plants, then will affect the
middle to upper half when it gets older, but It can also happen on older leaves as well.
The deficiency will start at the tip then will take over the entire outer left and right
sides of the leaves. The inner part will be yellow and or brownish in color, followed by
leaves falling without withering. The tips can also twist and turn as well as curving
upwards as if you curl your tongues.

Excessive levels of magnesium in your plants will exhibit a buildup of toxic salts that
will kill the leaves and lock out other nutrients like Calcium (Ca). Mg can get locked
out by having too much Calcium, Chlorine or ammonium in your soil/water.
One of the worst problems a person can have is a magnesium def caused by a ph lockout.
By giving it more magnesium to cure the problem when you are thinking you are doing good,
but actually you are doing more harm then good. When the plants can’t take in a nutrient
because of the ph being off for that element, the plant will not absorb it but it will be
in the soil… therefore causing a buildup. A buildup will be noticed by the outer parts of
the plant becoming whitish and or a yellowish color. The tips and part way in on the inner
leaves will die and feel like glass. Parts affected by Magnesium deficiency are: space
between the veins (Interveinal) of older leaves; may begin around interior perimeter of leaf.

Problems with Magnesium being locked out by PH troubles

Light Acid Soils, soils with excessive potassium, calcium and or phosphorus


Magnesium gets locked out of soil growing at ph levels of 2.0-6.4
Magnesium is absorbed best in soil at a ph level of 6.5-9.1 . (Wouldn’t recommend having a
ph of over 7.0 in soil) anything out of the ranges listed will contribute to a Magnesium

Hydro and Soil less Mediums

Magnesium gets locked out of Hydro and Soil less Mediums at ph levels of 2.0-5.7
Magnesium is absorbed best in Hydro and Soil less Mediums at ph levels of 5.8-9.1
(Wouldn’t recommend having a ph over 6.5 in hydro and soil less mediums.) Best range for
hydro and soil less mediums is 5.0 to 6.0. Anything out of the ranges listed will contribute
to a Magnesium deficiency.

Solution to fixing a Magnesium deficiency
Any Chemical/Organic nutrients that have Magnesium in them will fix a Magnesium deficiency.
(Only mixing at ½ strength when using chemical nutrients or it will cause nutrient burn!)
Other nutrients that have magnesium in them are: Epsom salts, which is fast absorption.
Dolomite lime and or garden lime (same thing just called different) which is slow absorption.
Sulfate of Potash, Magnesia which is medium absorption. Worm Castings, which is slow absorption.
Crabshell which is slow absorption. Earth Juice Mircoblast, which is fast acting. (a must buy!!
Has lots of 2ndary nutrients).
Now if you added to much chemical nutrients and or organics,( which is hard to burn your plants
when using organics) You need to Flush the soil with plain water. You need to use 2 times as
much water as the size of the pot, for example: If you have a 5 gallon pot and need to flush
it, you need to use 10 gallons of water to rinse out the soil good enough to get rid of excessive

Do you think if I squeezed the juice out of some blackberries and kiwis and mixed the juice from it into my water I feed it, that it will help with the magnesium?

Those are high in magnesium?

Or a magnesium supplement from a gnc or some sort of vitamin store? And where can I get ph testers and stuff to increase or decrease ph? Walmart?

Not to sure on the fruit and berries but, I know you can get a calmag supplement for under $15 off Amazon or local hydro store

@Camblam you can get calmag from any hydro store and ph tester pen style digital on eBay for like 12 bucks if you go anywhere else it can Cousy 30 on lowside and 75 on high side for the same one that would cost 12 bucks on eBay. Also with the cal mag a little goes a little d way depending on if you get liq or powder

Plant update since the post


She is looking good
