I don't know what I did wrong besides follow the instructions... My peppers were showing signs of calcium deficiency so I decided to go ahead and apply a calcium foliar spray to treat leaf deformity and blossom drop, both of which I was experiencing. Upon applying the spray, about 30 minutes later, 5-10% of the leaves began this dead wilt and you could tell they weren't coming back, super dark green and complete loss of form. I cut them off and said what the hell and went to bed. Today is what really scared me... my poor plants! They all lost at least half of there leaves, upon doing my daily shake for pollination, HALF the leaves just FELL OFF, even ones which looked healthy!!! What the hell is going on!? I can't find anything on the internet and i'm beginning to think maybe they have a disease because this shouldn't be happening...

You need to check the dilution rates and never apply in direct sun and on hot days. Early am or late afternoon sprays on cooler days and or in the shade are always preferred.

It was designed for direct application, but this is indoor and under a t5... assuming that was my issue? Can the plants be saved? They have already been through so much i'm really worried about them.

I'd stop fertilizing and use pure water only until they make a significant recovery, also maybe back off the lights for a while. You don't want to stress them any further. Also make sure they don't get too hot.
