Dry Fertz?

Does KNO3 increase both Potassium and nitrogen? And if so do I need to dose K2SO4 which is also potassium?

PART 1. correct
PART 2. no
k2po4 which is potassium phosphate if dosed properly will fill in the second gap of potassium

it won't hurt you to dose extra potassium you just won't need it
also GH Booster if you use it has potassium in it

Agreed with Blazingwolf

I will occasionally dose K2SO4 but I get quite a bit of potassium in my KNO3 dosing.

Check out this calculator to see how much k you're dosing with your KNO3 dose:
