Assuming there was little or no potassium in the tank before I began dosing, what differences am I likely to see in the plants now that they're getting 20 PPM potassium?

K should make a big difference. It affects mostly old leaves, but since it is required in order for plant to take in so many other nutrients, it also can effect young or new leaves. To me, the difference has been large, but I still can't get my stunted swords to grow any larger even though I am running CO2 at 20-30 ppm and fertalizing and everything else.... I think they might be stunted for good...
