I would check and make sure the test kit isnt expired. Also unless you calibrate the test kit you really wont know what the actual value is.

Are talking about putting each individual piece in or osmocote plus root tabs? If they are root tabs then space them out every 5".

Honestly if you are 'close' to the suggest amounts, why not just dose the Gh booster. A little too much wont cause you any issues and in fact could help avoid some problems.

The liquid NPK+M ferts have stuff in it to help prevent the mold issue but eventually they will mold. I have had some that I have tested for more than a year now without any mold.

Have you gone through the hassle of calibrating your test kits just to see what P and K levels you commonly have? It would be interesting to know. Tank looks great as always by the way.

Do you have them in the fridge? If so you dont need to do that. That is likely what is causing the issue.

1 squirt of each would be fine, if you start seeing deficiencies than up it a little. With your tank 1x a week should be enough. And yes you can stop dosing those.

I dont see why you couldnt divide the full weekly dose and dose it throughout the week. Just seems like more effort on your part but cant imagine that it would cause an issue.

What you are suggesting is fine. Go ahead and dose the Gh booster, it is very unlikely that adding a little extra Gh will cause any issues. More issues will be caused by not having enough ca or mg.

What do you consider high? Also how are you testing it? Test kits are notoriously inaccurate. Have you calibrated your test kit?

How much kno3 are you adding?
