The principle to be reconized is that a balance between light intensity and nutrients must be present in order for plants to photosynthesize fully. And one of the bst ways to test if sufficient nutrients are present is by observing the response of the plants. And this refers to their appearance, not the rate of growth. If everything is in balance, the plants will appear healthy.
