a good friend of mine was sent to the best veg farmer around in vermont for tomato and pepper plants.when checking out the farmer insisted that he should put (2) tablespoons of EPSOM SALT in the bottom of each hole the plants would be transplanted to.he promised he would double the harvest he was used to seeing.???
does anyone have any experience with epsom salt ?? would it help with weed??? the farmer said he tells everyone about this.the next year they say its the most veg. they ever had...

Yep just about all of us iuse some type of Cal/Mag in our grows. The Mj plant is a strong user of both and a cal/mag def is one of the first problems to show.

I worked for a Japanese farmer (back in the 70's) on a tomatoes plantation on the big island of Hawaii. Ya,he used salt(s) on his crops and the were great crops. I'd go with it.

Like Ozzy said, most of us use some kind of Calcium/Magnesium supplement. You will not see double the yield doing this, however. Unfortunately there is no "magic formula" that is going to be able to double the yield of a plant that is well taken care of.

Although tomatoes and peppers may be somewhat similar to grow, they are not mj and do not have the needs that mj does.

I've not ever used a calcium or magnesium supplement. Maybe my high concentration of worm castings offsets the demand?

What type of supplement is everyone using? Any favorite brands for an organic grow?

Molasses and cal/mag (whatever brand suits you, I guess) is what I use, they love the molasses. Hydro shop guy gave me bud candy to try, but who knows.

I use epsom salts when mixing or amending my soil.

I water with backstrap molasses.

If additional mg is needed I use Botanicare Cal-Mag Plus or General Organics Ca Mg+

My last grow I forgot the epsom salt and just gave a heavy feedings of GO CaMG to counter the missing epsom salt. Worked ok but still wished I would have not forgotten the epsom salt.

Do NOT use high concentrations of worm castings in soil. It's to heavy/thick for the roots to grow into. I advise you to use worm (castings) tea along with molasses. Don;t forget about KELP. Just read up on this site and you'll find all that you need for good growing. Green blessings.
