Epson salt ! Yes I have use it for years but not so much as a fertilizer rather a mineral. Also have used seaweed that I do not wash simply because it has salt in and on it. In a hydroponic garden you add Epsom salt every time you add fertilizer.
COTTON HULLS Woo Hooo! never had the opportunity to get any but next time I can get some I'm going to try and see how it works. The heat generated is more likely from its breaking down and turning into compost .. Compost is an excellent addition to any plant.. Im thinking a few more peeps will send more and better info than I have to offer .. There a a few really big brain on this list
