A calcium deficiency is called tip burn in lettuce.
How do u fix that?
In research done on tipburn, it’s been found that an increase in tipburn correlates with evapotranspiration, meaning the water flow through the air from the plant. If your soil is low in calcium, it can help to add some or use a calcium foliage spray directly to the leaves. (Unfortunately, the foliage spray would only be helpful to leaf lettuce, since the spray could not reach inside of head lettuce.) Calcium is transported to the leaves through water. If there is enough calcium in your soil or water supply, having a good water regiment helps to reduce water stress, in turn increasing the amount of calcium to the leaves. I hope this helps! Great question, Thanks!
