I sprinkled 1tbsp and a half of Epsom salts in the base of the plant yesterday, it rained hard last night so I moved the plant indoors and woke up and it had these color on new leaves... What happened? Too much water from the rain? Or too much Epsom salts? Any ideas?

Why are you salting your plant? Salt crystals block up the roots and prevent uptake of water and nutrients. Also, if your soil is waterlogged, your plant will also start to turn yellow.

It's basically dying and you're the killer. First make sure you have proper drainage, and if so, attempt to dilute the salt by adding water.

the container has some holes for added drainage, this is my first grow and I read that epsom salts could help with the growth of the plant in veg stage. I added water to it regularly and it's fine now. I'll be sure to dilute the salts in water next time I use it which is I really don't know when but i'm guessing 2 weeks or so from now.

You'll be okay without salt. Nitrogen helps in the vegetative stage, so you could fins some 3-1-1 fertilizer that would actually be helpful.

Maybe you spent a lot of money on salt and are worried about it going to waste. Never fear, OP. Salt baths are actually very good for you. You can use up all your salt, whilst also purging various toxins and what not through your skin. The skin becomes almost like a 3rd kidney when you submerge it in salt water.

I spent all day rinsing salt buildup out of my dutch buckets two days ago.

You can't let your ppm or electrical conductivity go to high, weed drinks through osmosis, if the water is too salty then it can't get into the plant, and if it does it causes vascular damage that doesn't really heal. Your leaves are going to claw up and stay that way if you don't flush the fuck out of that plant.

mmmhmmm clawed leaves are bad, they are like zombie leaves that aren't dead but don't do anything for the plant. They sometimes look OK because they are super green from lots of nitrogen being locked in by salt damage, but they feel leathery instead of soft like healthy leaves and they are curled down into a claw shape.

What little weed you get from a salt damaged plant is fluffy wiffle ball stuff that always tastes bad because it is impossible to flush properly because salt got carried into the leaves and crystalized inside the veins and so the veins are all blocked up and theres a bunch of shit all through the plant that it couldn't get rid of even though you just poured RO filtered water on it and nothing else for 2 weeks.
