EI dosing method question.

Right now i only have the N,P,K with me. I did not look carefully before i made a purchase from nicog, so i missed out a few and i need to be correct on few things. Here is my spec
- 55 gallon
- finnex ray 2 48 inch ds
- dirted, capped with black diamond sand
- gonna have pressure system up tomorrow as i'm done with the diy and i'm aimming 2-3 bps.
- Right now i'm dosing following the EI method guide in the forum( oh and that's probly the reason why i missed out plantex csm+). I dose 3 times a week and 50% water change with npk, i also add seachem trace/flourish exel/florusih iron liquid 2 times a week.
After 3 months of running, i get all other growing great with such dosing schedule and diy co2 but i did not get good growing on ludwigia sp red ( lower leaves die off and then float) and the limnophila aromatic ( lower leaves fall but the top stays, getting red when it reaches the top) . And also the stargrass don't look good in this tank.

Anyway, I want to go on full dry ferts and not using seachem liquid again, if so , what dry ferts will i need?
