Arugula Nutrient Deficiency Troubleshooting

abcarterJanuary 23, 2012

New member here!

Arugula is exhibiting interveinal chlorosis, while no other plants are showing much of a deficiency of anything. I'm thinking I need more Mg or Fe, but I haven't found any evidence that it needs more than any of the other varieties in the system and would rather not add it if it's not the problem here.

I'm growing varieties of lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, and arugula in a larger seedling bench system, running ebb and flow. Using General Hydroponics MaxiGro for the whole system.

Does anybody have a similar experience or know why Arugula may be more finicky than other plants in my system?

Since you didn't sent a picture let me ask this. Is it at the top or the bottom where it started. Where is the plant placed in your system. If it's high on the plant it's Mg if it'd lower it's nitgroen. With regular hydroponics you can't mix plant types. If it's towards the end of your set up it's a concentration imbalance affecting ph. While lettace and spinach would be alright together kale and chard are big nutrient consumers.
