    I can't find the doseage and it's been too long ago to remember.

    I'm thinking it's around 2 tablespoons per gallon, does that sound right? I definately have a magnesium deficiency and it's pretty bad on two plants.

    i foliar feed with Mg and i usually use 1tsp per gallon, but if you are having a defficency then i would def bump it up to 2

    Thanks but I'm not talking about mg though, epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) only for a magnesium deficiency.

    I just bought some and the label says for Houseplants mix one teaspoon per gallon of water and feed to plants every one to four weeks. I haven't used any yet myself. Wasn't sure if I got the right kind since it was sulphured but I might have been confusing that with the molasses.

    It says that on the box? Is it referring to foliar or just feeding in the soil?

    It's a bag and I'd assume soil, but it doesn't specify... that was their instruction for indoor word 4 word. Heck, I didn't even know you could use epsom salts to feed the foliage.

    It also says: for best results, water after usage. So it's possible they were referring to foliar watering.

    Mg stands for magnesium. I was referring to epsom salts. 1-2 tsp

    go with 3 TBS per gallon and do that 1 time per day.. or 2 TBS/gal 2 times per day. Personally i would try to wait until the next feeding or watering... or if it was critical then I would flush the container. Then i would give it a feeding a nutes + a good dose of epsom salts.. like 2 TBS per gallon of water of epsom salts. It will be very important to let the container dry out after rewatering/flushing and such.

    Feed it to the roots, not the leaves.

    It works better that way. Make sure you actually have a Mg deficiency and not lockout, or something else.

    Ok so im having a similar problem, Im not certain if it is a magnesium deficiency, i was told it was; Im having small burn marks, the tips of my plants are most certainly CLAW’d curling downward, and some of the leaves are coming in twisted?! I kind fucked up on my nutrients because of horrible information given on sites like these! I was told to give them fox farm Grow Big and this seems to work worse
