Do succulents like Epsom salt as fertilizer?

  • I think you are asking if you can use Epsom salt as food for succulents. You would mix 1 tablespoon of E/salts to one gallon of water and you should give them this once per month and regular water the rest of the time.

    Epsom salts are a great addition to your succulents to keep them healthy.

    Here's one recipe that helps:

    1 12-ounce can or bottle of beer
    1 cup of Epsom salts
    1/2 cup of ammonia
    2 cups of water
    1/2 cup of molasses
    mix and store in bottle, no need to refrig. 1tsp per gal when you water.

    Epsom salts will dry out the succulents roots. I have used horse manure tea and cow manure tea. It's less messy when the manure is dry. I put it in cheese cloth and tie it up, then put in water to steep like you would tea. I use the water to feed the succulent. If this is not something you want to do then you can buy a succulent fertilize. Just remember most fertilizers are made with salt so read the label ingredient.
