First time growers . I have 5 plants in 15 gallon and 2 in 5 gallon. Planted in January, mistakes I know I made

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

First time growers . I have 5 plants in 15 gallon and 2 in 5 gallon. Planted in January, mistakes I know I made; heavy pestisides with oils and left in the sun. thinking they would be fine since they were organic but missed the essential oils in them. Over watered. Then 110 degree heat here in Covina , Calif the past 3 weeks and continuing . plants are growing in 15 gallon pots outside and under the patio.

 My husband is a landscaper and kept saying they were dehydrated.  So he dumped gallons of water in them til it really ran through.    Leaves  were drying up  and the tops were doing the same but struggling. Water pH is 90. I have aerated the water now and just fed them a very low dose of Cal Mag. Seems like it  needs to be flushed.

Now, 1 plant in the 15 gallon and 1 plant in the 5 Gallon are a different strain and did not have the same start of heavy bug spraying and such but the buds are 4 inches long on one plant and are just now starting the curling of the tips . I am just stumped and really don’t want to lose these babies. There is so much stuff out there to help you and very wonderful to have access .Hope you can help. It is a part of medicinal treatment.

Ph is at 90 ?
In soil your ph should be 6.3-6.8
Wayering until water runs through is actually the right thing to do but you want to let the poys dry out before watering again
Food grade de is a good choice and neem oil is goid for use in veg

I suspect you ph is causing lock out conditions
And plants are struggling to uptake the nutrients from soil
