ABSTRACT
The article discusses the chemistry involved in rose nutrient uptake. The chemical process ionization occurs in nutrient uptake. This process is when salt which is made up of two elements, sodium and chlorine, dissolve. A nutrient must be in ionic form in the soil before it goes to the plant. Most ionization occurs as the elements are dissolved in water, hence the reason for watering after fertilization. The ion's positive charge called a cation and a negative charge called anion are discussed.
