Just curious, would epsom salt increase the size of my peppers? Can I give the epsom salt to the plants when they have fruit and blooms? Thanks!

The magnesium allows the plant to absorb necessary nutrients from the soil. It can be given to the plants throughout the growing season.

Magnesium is a part of the chloraphyll like the nitrogen is but in much smaller quantities. It also helps start many plant enzymes that are needed for plant growth. So is it going to increase the size of your fruit. Probably not to a noticable degree.
