Hiya earlygirl :unsure:

Weather or not epsom salts (Magnesium Sulphate) will help depends on if you have a magnesium deficiency. Got a pic of the plant ?

As to where you can get it try your local chemist. Boots, Superdrug, some grow shops sell it too.

I was advised to add a tea spoon per litre of water. Foliar feed with a light misting before the lights go out. Apply for a few nights if needed.

ganja plants are hungry for epsom salts, and in nearly every feeding regimen it has a place - its use is also sanctioned by the soil association, so is regarded as organic. I'd recommend perhaps three doses, one midway through veg, and a couple early in flowering - a tablespoon a gallon! - if you want chapter and verse, do a site search! :unsure:

-you can buy it in any chemist, or you can get a thumping big box really cheap in any garden centre :)

Aye i just found that out the hard way. Looks like i'll be following your plan with using it a few times through out the grows.

Don't use it too often Kafka as it'll lock out other micro nutes.

Use epsom as a foliar spray throughout the veg period, with two water/feed applications, & then on day 10 & day 35 of 12/12 as a water/feed application.

If a plant needs more, just foliar feeds, not with water/feed.

Can you use epsom salts as a foliar spray during the flowering period ?

Once they start to throw pistils & get stuck into flowering, no.

I have fed my white widow plants twice now in flowering and they still exhibit Mg deficiency shall I add a little more epsom salts in the next watering. It maybe I got the dose of epsom salts wrong as i didn't want to cause a nute lock out.

How long into flower are they now?

If they're suffering badly from (Mg) deficiency, then dose them again at 1 tablespoon per 5 litres. You should only be dosing them like this twice during flower really.

Next time, get your mister out when you see the first signs of (Mg) def ;)

They're not too bad but the lower leaves are showing signs and are yellowing between the veins. The upper leaves are ok. The plants have been in flower for 38 days now.

If upper growth is fine, & the problem ain't getting worse, then leave them to get on with it.

How many times have you dosed them with a water/feed btw?

Twice now once at 10 days and again at 21 days in flower, But I am not sure if I got the dose right :headpain: I am tempted to add one more dose say 1 teaspoon per 5 litres what do you think.
