I have used but it seems they are worthless for our region... our plain baalu matti is the best for taking cuttings and seedling medium... if you want to sow your seeds please refer to my post on Seedling potting mix...

Epsom salt is Magnesium sulfate (used for tomatoes, roses and petunia)
Ferous sulfate provides extra iron which used by iron-inefficient plants like gardenia to reduce cholorosis..

Remove the sheet...bring them in full sun... keep moist all the time.... after 15 days start giving them Ferous sulfate (half teaspoon in 2 litre water) twice a week...

If you think they are weak then keep in area with morning sun... shift gradually to full sun...
