I just watered my 9 plants two days ago and everything looks great accept I have a slight magnesium deficiency (leaves curling inward) I know that to fix this I could just water again with epsom salts(1 tablespoon per gallon) However they were just watered and they are in 5 gallon pots so I'd much rather do a foliar feed with epsom salts to help correct this problem. Can I foliar spray them with a water/magnesium mixture or would this be a bad idea? If I can do a foliar feed with epsom salts how much epsom salts do I use per gallon? Any idea or advice would be good.
Thank you very much for your time,

Thanks alot Rasta. I will foliar feed them in the morning. How much epsom salts did you use per gallon? I was thinking of going with 1 tablespoon per gallon but Wasn't sure if maybe 1 tablespoon per gallon would be too strong when used in foliar. Thanks in advance.
