Hey guys, I have a job to design something to increase the chlorophyll inside of plants, not kill them, and fertilize them at the same time. Uh I can get them the fertilizer, but I need something to make them green, which I assumed increasing Chlorophyll levels in a plant would be the best way. Any ideas on how to do this?

That means you want to convert variegated leaves into green ones.

To be specific, Grass.

I see...

But unfortunately I'm not aware of the method to be used.

Not an increase of chlorophyll but an increase in efficiency.

Yeah, except I'm trying to solve first world problems to get money to solve third world problems.

 

Although, I wonder if the maximum amount of people the earth can sustain just went up a large amount?

Larger leaves.

Well the idea is actually for grass. To make it look green, to fertilize it, and most of all, not kill it.

As far as I know chlorophyll is a compound of magnesium. So soil enriched with Mg may be useful.

I might be wrong....

Enrich your soil with N(Nitrogen) and M(Magnesium).
N and M are building blocks to make Chlorophyll. K(Potassium) helps transport Chlorophyll. But to much K inhibits Chlorophyll uptake so I would be careful when you add K. This is what a chlorophyll molecule looks like:

edit: When you add to much nitrogen, the grass might look burned and might die. This can also happen when you pee on the grass. Especially when you've eaten a lot proteins, your pee will contain a lot of nitrogen (ureum).

There are some things so serious you have to laugh at them.

It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.

Brilliant.

Experiments will be conducted shortly and the chemical compound will hopefully be found. Now I can get magnesium, now where to get nitrogen.

As well as a few other minor things to help.

Nitrogen-rich fertilizer. But you want to inject it in the soil to prevent aforementioned damage. Ammonia is caustic.

I don't suppose there's any way to separate the nitrogen? I'm assuming not.
