Your just going to make them grow faster and get more gsa, you'll be amazed (well I was) as it seem totally backwards to me, but after you start to dose the gsa will just start to clear.
This is the last EI dosing formula that plantbrain posted, it's been working good for me.
EI dosing for a 50 gallon tank:
2-3x a week:
1/2 teaspoon KNO3
1/8th teaspoon of the KH2P4
I think he meant KH2P04
Add K2SO4 after water change, say 1 teaspoon
CMS+B, I'd add 1 TABLE spoon into 500mls of water, 1 teaspoon of MgSO4(Epsom salt), dose 15mls 3x a week
The only thing I'm doing different is using Barr's gH Booster instead of the recommended K2S04.
One of my next projects is to up my lighting with 2 bulbs that have been out for a while and my plants should start growing like crazy.
