In my opinion you should wash up those plants as much as possible including roots. I would change pots and soil .

Hi Daan,

I would do as suggested and try to flush as much as possible. I certainly would not try to neutralise the acetic acid, that's more likely to do more harm than good. Acetic acid is an organic acid, so it should degrade fairly fast in the medium, by microbial activity. However any damage you see was probably caused in the first few hours before symptoms became apparent. Once the plants are looking burnt the damage has probably been done.

Out of curiosity, why do you water the plants from the kettle?

Miguel.
