Sodium (NA)

By: Cody E. & Zach M.

what it does

Helps plants bring water into themselves through osmosis. Water diffuses across the concentration gradient (towards the higher concentration, to balance things out..) into the plant.

where it comes from

Sodium is found in form of halite, natron and zeoilte deposits in ocean water. It is formed by the evaporation of prehistoric seas and dry salted lake-beds. Sodium is never found as a pure element due to its high reactivity.

2 signs plant lacking nutrient

-Reduction of growth in the plant.

-Causes the tips of the leaves to burn and change colors, unhealthy for the plants.
