    I heard that Epson Salt helps bring back magnesium to the soil ; if that's true, how much would I need to use in a 3 gal. container?

    very little, epsom salt is a fast acting cal/mag supplement that sould be dissolved and applied with water, be careful it can easily burn your plants or cause nutrient lock. also its extremely temporary your better off finding some fine dolomite lime to mix in, it will do the same job, but better and last longer with less chance of burn, and will return ph levels to nuetral

    Epsom salt doesn't change PH at all or cause lock out.

    Some ppl use 1 tsp (teaspoon) to a gallon others 1 Tbl (Tablespoon)

    IMO... 3 gal. container = 3 Tbl Epsom salt...

    Sorry, I think I read it wrong. I agree that too much of anything can be bad for the plants and not to over do it.

    Those amounts, tsp, or tbl are to a gallon of water, not mix and 3tbl in a 3gal container might be a bit much.

    Dissolve between 1tsp>1tbl in a gallon of water and simply water your plant well with it.

    The plant will absorb what it needs. It does wash out of the soil fairly quickly and I fine better results with low doses (1 tsp), more often, than heavier doses farther apart.

    YMMV
