Which ferts did you mix? Nitrate and Phosphate will be ok for a while.
Phosphate and micros may be a problem due to the iron. Iron and phosphate attach to each other very easily and it's difficult to separate the chemical bond. Essentially, they lock each other up and become unusable to the plants.
