The basic nutrients plants need are, water, light, food, pottasium and microelements ( iron, zink, magnesuim, etc)
Probably only rhodium from rhodon (Rose in the Greek language).
Plants don't need fertilizer, nor do they need soil. There are some plants that grow in water. Although nutrients would still need to be put through the water for the plants t…o absorb. there for plants only need: Sun light, water, carbon dioxide and nutrients.
Nitrogen and Iron carbon dioxide, sunlight, and water are the really obvious ones
The sun is pretty important to make it grow. I would say mostly water. Water is caught by it's leaves to transfer to everything else. By the time it grows by water, the sun dr…ies it up. Then, it can die if you don't water it or you water it too much. Your welcome!
Water (H 2 O) , sunlight (heat by radiation), and certain nutrients that right now I cannot give specifically.
nitrogen and phosphorous
1. Sunlight 2. Water 3. Carbon dioxide 4. Nutrients
Carbon dioxide and sunlight help plants grow but without carbon dioxide plants can't do photosynthesis so if there's no carbon dioxide there's no photosynthesis and if the pla…nt can't do photosynthesis it can't use the sunlight and will die.
1- soil 2-water 3-sun 4-glucose
Those four elements are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen (sometimes known collectively as CHON).
Nitrogen and Iron are the main two, but a plant also needs the obvious Carbon Dioxide, sunlight, and water.
All the macro and micro-elements like N, P, K, Mg, S, Zn, Fe, Cl, Cu, B, Ca etc. Some of the important elements like c, O2 & H2 are maid available from the air and water.
Air . Water . Sunlight . Green leaves, stems, roots etc.
