What does a micro deficiency look like?

Say you never dose CSM + B and o ly use RO water. Besides iron and red plants, what would happen?

Hi @Ddrizzle,

Micro-nutrient deficiencies vary with the nutrient that is deficient and the species of plant. Typical deficiencies would include interveinal chlorosis, overall leaf chlorosis, leaf margin chlorosis, necrosis at leaf margins, necrosis at leaf base, spots of necrosis in the leaves, leaf margins curling up, leaf margins curling down, twisted leaves, leaves failing to form properly, stunted leaves, minimal growth and premature loss of leaves and those are just off the top of my head.
