Plant Problems

This is a simple quiz to diagnose your plant. It covers most of the basic deficiencies and problems. Before you take the quiz make sure you cover simple things like PH and check the roots for root rot if you are using DWC. This is not an exact diagnosis tool, but it is helpful to point you in the right direction if you have no clue where to start. Keep in mind that you probably won't have just one rare deficiency and your plant will show multiple symptoms. Try running through the quiz a few times if you are unsure about some questions.
