    This source says this:

    When diluted with water, Epsom salt is easily taken up by plants, especially when applied as a foliar spray. Most plants can be misted with a solution of 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt per gallon of water once a month. For more frequent watering, every other week, cut this back to 1 tablespoon.

    With roses, you can apply a foliar spray of 1 tablespoon per gallon of water for each foot of the shrub’s height. Apply in spring as leaves appear and then again after flowering.

    For tomatoes and peppers, apply 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt granules around each transplant or spray (1 tbsp. per gallon) during transplanting and again following the first bloom and fruit set.

  • I’ve heard anywhere between 1 tsp to 1 tbsp per gallon of water. I play it safe and use 1 tsp per gallon for my houseplants. Every other time my ferns need watering, I fill a bowl up with the solution and put the pot inside the bowl for 30 minutes so the roots get watered. I also keep a spray bottle with the solution and spray the leaves daily because the lack of humidity in our house in the winter. It seems to keep them happy

    Depends on the plant and what the application is for.
