help with deficiency

Hey guys, real quick. What do you think this deficiency is. I have a 55 gallon heavily planted tank, co2 with ph controller and 2x54w T5 and doing the EI dosing method. Everything else in the tank is doing well. There are also new plants I added 2 weeks ago but these have been going downhill. Notice the golden creeping jenny is turning yellow/brownish. I thought potassium but I have dosed extra potassium twice but its not turning around.,c9iYs6D#0

If all your other plants are doing well, then everything should be good. I am not a plant expert, but have heard that sometimes plants don't make it, or that they die a bit, and then grow a bit. I think this is because the plants that you are growing were grown on a different water source.
