Hello Friends! In Today’s episode, we will look into some
amazing miracles of organic Epsom salt in gardening. We will learn, why you should use Epsom salt
for your plants and how to use Epsom salt as a liquid form and also in your potting
mix. Coming up! Before we start, please make sure you have
subscribed to our channel along with the bell notification clicked. Epsom salt is an easily available inexpensive
naturally occurring mineral salt that has a variety of applications. It is used in medical science, agriculture,
gardening and even for many home remedies for health and beauty. Epsom salt is chemically Magnesium Sulphate
and obviously contain the element Magnesium. Did you know Magnesium is the central atom
in between four nitrogen atoms in the chlorophyll molecule. For beginners, Chlorophyll is the pigment
present in leaves which is essential for photosynthesis – that’s plant food production. Its so much important and that’s the reason
why Magnesium is rightly called as the MAJOR MINOR ELEMENT. For beginners, the Major elements required
for plant growth are the NPK – nitrogen, phosphorous and Potassium and Minor elements like Magnesium,
calcium, boron, zinc, iron and others. Well, Now let s list out the best uses of
Epsom salt in gardening and farming and how to and how much Epsom salt to use for each
gardening task. Please watch this episode till the end. 1.Seed Germination: Magnesium is proven to
help in seed germination and helps by strengthening the cell walls and leading to much stronger
seedlings. You should be aware of this problem called
Damping off which affects the seedlings resulting in rotting and death of young plants. Of course this topic needs another detailed
episode to discuss in detail. But for now remember, to prevent this problem,
Make a solution of 1 teaspoon of Epsom salt in 1 litre of water and spray it on the seedlings
once ot twice daily. 1 teaspoon is roughly 5 gms by weight. 2.Improve Foliage Appearance and Strength:
Meaning increase the greenery of your leaves or even lawn grass. As I said earlier, Magnesium is an essential
component in the production of chlorophyll which is the green pigment in plants. For this you can make a foliar spray made
of 1 teaspoon in 1 litre of water. Spray this once every 15 days to keep your
plants lush green. If you are lazy or do not have time to make
a foliar spray, you can even sprinkle 1 or 2 pinches of epsom salt around your plant
soil. It is water soluble and can easily get in
through the roots of the plant whenever you water the plant. Another method is drenching the plant with
Epsom salt solution when you are watering your plants. For this you can use half a teaspoon per litre
of water and drench your plants whenever you are watering them. This way it will uptake magnesium from the
roots as well as from the leaf stomata. 3.Treatment and Prevention of Leaf Curling
which is due to magnesium deficiency. Of course there are many reasons for leaf
curl and leaf discoloration whether upcurl or downcurl and there is a pattern to identify
different micronutrient deficiencies. I have discussed in detail about leaf curl
in one of my episodes. To treat leaf curl, you can mix two teaspoons
or 10 gms in 1 litre of water and spray this on your plant foliage. Make sure the foliar spraying is done max
at the underside of the leaves, because the stomata or leaf opening for absorption are
located in large numbers at the underside of the leaves. 4.Transplant Shock or Repotting Shock: When
we repot a plant, the roots and the plant invariably face a bad situation what is called
as transplant shock which can even kill your plant. To counter this You can follow two method. When you take out the root ball for repotting,
you can just soak it for an hour in Epsom salt solution. Or alternately you can just water the plant
with the Epsom salt solution immediately after repotting. The dosage is again the same proportion – 2
teaspoons in 2 litres of water per plant. Water this weekly once or till the plant recovers. 5.Nutrient Absorption: Magnesium is a component
of many fertilizer products because it facilitates the roots to uptake or absorb vital nutrients
like nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur and other nutrients. 6.Magnesium-hungry crops and plants, like
potatoes, roses, tomatoes, lemon trees, carrots, and peppers are very much benefited. You get healthier Fruits and Vegetables when
you use Epsom salt once every 15 days or atleast once a month. 7.Garden Pests like Slugs and snails are killed
by Epsom salt. Directly sprinkle on these common garden pests. 8.Get beautiful, healthy and big sized roses
by using Epsom salt. As I mentioned rose is one of the magnesium
hungry plants. Adding Epsom salt along with decomposed cow
dung or vermicompost once every 15 days to your rose plant around the soil can really
make a difference. You can also perform a foliar spray of Epsom
salt solution as mentioned. The dose is same like 1 teaspoon in 1 litre
of water. 9.Adding it in Potting Mix: Magnesium sulfate
is pH neutral, so it won’t significantly alter the soil PH. You can watch my detailed episode on the Universal
cock-tail fertilizer powder we prepared by mixing a lot of stuff. You can exclude urea and NPK from this mixture
and make it a complete organic mixed fertilizer. You can watch that episode from this end-screen
