    My plant is doing this, as you can see here:

    It states above that:
    Is this for hydroponic systems?

    Am I able to put 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt/gallon of water even though I have liquid seaweed in the gallon of water also?

    Am I able to use normal salt? or is Epsom salt the normal kind of salt?

    If I have to foliar feed, what does he mean by:

    Thanks for your time and help, I appreciate it.:mrgreen:

    P.S. Check out my first Grow Journal!!!

    Yes, you can use Epsom Salts in your hydro reservoir. And you can mix it like it said, and spray your plants with it to give them a MG boost faster.

    No, it's not the same as table salt, or Sodium Cloride. Epsom Salt is Magnesium Sulfate, completely different stuff.

    Does it make you wish you listened that day in Chem class? :mrgreen:

    also, you may want to flush your res and related equipment. assuming that your plants are not deficient in other nutes, try just using epsom salt in the new res water for a few cycles, the results will be almost immediate. after a few days , change the water and re-up on all the stuff you normally use.

    one last thing, check your ph. this is the main cause of many nute related probs. (imho)
