Epsom salts?

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by TheMysticMan, May 19, 2006.

  1. What exactly does adding this plants do?
  2. It supplements them with magnesium.
    It is good to use when plants are magnesium deficient.
  3. I'd only use epsom for a lack of Mg/magnesium. Mg-deficiency is easily fixed with X teaspoon/gallon of Epsom salts (first powdered and dissolved in some hot water) or foliar feed at X teaspoon/quart. When mixing up soil, use 2 teaspoon dolomite lime per gallon of soil for Mg. Mg can get locked-up by too much Ca, Cl or ammonium nitrogen. Don't overdo Mg or you'll lock up other nutrients.
