    Well i have a magnisum deficiency and i have not yet got any epsom salts, i was wondering if i could use Chelated magnesium glycinate or magnsium citrate if i ground up some pills i have and folia feed my plants?

    The reason i ask is im waiting for my epsom salts in the post, and my plants are looking very sick:

    I wouldnt spray your plants with that are you sure your plant if magnisum deficient? I think you just have some Ph problems spraying epsom salt on your leaves isn't going to help anything in fact I think you would just clog your stomata.

    Im growing in organic potting soil (biobizz all mix) im using distilled water, i PH to around 6.5 each watering. There are yellow spots forming on all the leaves including the top leaves, i really don't know why. My plants are just flowering now.

    How far along are they again, do you have a micro-nutrient or anything with trace elements in it?
