How did you do that?

In any case.. Yes. That is ahrmfull. And depending on how serious your post is, you might want to put the plant for an hour in a buket of water, moving it in and out every 5 minutes or so.

How long after using salt water (!) did you discover it. If immediately, you're probably OK. If considerable time passed, maybe not. Leatherback's instructions are good if not too much time passed.

Don't mess with it any more. Water normally. Fertilize when you normally wold. It will (or won't) survive, and there's little you can do now. I think you will be fine.
