Can you post pictures of the other plants as well?

Calcium deficiencies are very hard to get. Plants do not use much of it per week even in a heavily planted tank. With anything over 2 or 3 degrees of hardness your tank should be fine with...

This is a much better idea than the 1-2 punch method which can also damage plants in the process.
