I’d just start over and learn from the experience.
Plants and Humans are not the same in this manner... The longer all that overloaded food sits in your plant's environment will only continue to do more damage...These are not my plants lmaoo.
also if u over fed a tree which i have plenty of times before. U have to give them time to eat the water thats already in there before giving them more!! Thats like u as a human trying to eat more after eating a full course meal u have to let ur body to digest it first, same concept with plants.
So this is a good example of what happens when your not saturating the pots? Is that correct? Maintaining that water table. Been giving just enough water to keep things going along, but not really saturating everything so that the roots can expand correctly.This ^^^
