Mrs. Bradley,
For the houseplants, you can use appoximately 2 tablespoons per gallon of water; then you should feed your plants on a monthly basis.

Thank You, Weezie! I tried a little on my babytears and it seems to be getting back to its adorable green self. I had to repot about a week ago to a 6 inch pot cause so much of it was dying off and lots of it were turning yellow, but since the repot and epsom salt, it is looking lots better. yaaaay!

Could someone please clarify for me why I would use epsom salts on my indoor plants?

Mandy,
Why It Works [thumb]

Basic's of it, it helps the plant take up and utilize better the phosphorus and nitrogen....
