Use it to correct a mg deficiency or to give extra to plants the need more, like Gg4. It is most effective as a foliar spray mixed at 1-2TBS per gallon. Not really needed in most cases, imo. Too much mg can also lock out calcium and potassium.

ok thanks.  SO would you recommend using it as a foliar spray rather than mixing it with my nutrients and watering the plants with it?

Yes, but I would recommend not using it at all unless needed

If you want to use it as part of your regular schedule, use about a 1/2tsp every other feed in your water. Or like 1tsp per gal every two weeks as a foliar. I do 1Tbsp/gal as a foliar on Gg4 like 2x throughout flower

You can also just sprinkle a few teaspoons on top of the soil and let the water carry it in when you water the plants.

Works real well for tomatoes and peppers too. It helps them set fruit and stops blossom end rot in tomatoes.
