Unhappy FloraPride misting fail

So I have an emergent setup in my basement that's been doing well for a while now, I use MGOCPM and/or compost. One day I came across some Tetra FloraPride in one of my free Craigslist finds, and figured I'd mix it with my misting water to see if it might help growth (I know this isn't the purpose of the product, was just an experiment). After only two times of misting with this stuff, my plants have all started declining, getting some sort of mold/fungus on them, wilting or melting away... Can anyone think of why this might have happened?

Just thought I'd share this experience in case anyone thought of doing something similar, to save you some heartache...

Hmmmm..the bottle says 0-0-3...so thats just K. I'm wondering if that was meant only for submersed and the concentration was too high? Would be worth washing down your plants to remove any residual and perhaps dilute it out?

That's exactly what I just did, hopefully they recover.
