    Ok I came to the conclusion that my plant needs Epson salt to help her Intake some nutes...how much should I give her? She is in a 5 gl pot I give her about 800 ml of water every other day, nutes every other watering.

    i would mix up a gallon of water and add a teaspoon of of epson salt and shake good and let sit for a half hour then water...or you can spray that solution directly on the plant

    Two more questions pls. Will the gallon of water stay with the Epson salt in it or will it dilute. Cause I can add the salt to the gallon, but the gallon of water is gonna sit there will It loose the amount added like dissolve with time or will it be good till I finish the gl of water. My other question would be....should I continue nutes with the espson salt water?

    Take it easy with the Mg. I use RO and add Ca & Mg in equal parts as too much Mg locks out Ca plus others. If u wanna use Mg in the form of Epsom Salts then add 2 teaspoons for 1 gallon or use as a foliar spray.

    Should I spray the plant with the Epson salt water and do regular distilled watering with nutes? Or should I also add the Epson salt to the water used for the soil and nutes?

    I don't like to spray anything on my buds
    1/2 tsp per gallon of epsom salt one or
    two times is plenty. Do you water good till you
    get some out the bottom and letting it dry out
    good cause every other day is a lot of watering
    I use the 5 gallon pots and water every 3 days
    and some times 4 days:)
