-Promotes good growth for young roots and shoots

-Naturally forms compounds by reacting with water and oxygen, formed mostly in earth's crust

-Two signs the plant is lacking calcium is the young leaves are twisted or wrinkled, and growth is reduced with tiny black spots appearing around mid-leaf area of young leaves

-A recommended fertilizer is adding agricultural lime to acid soils and add calcium to roots
