Potassium

What does flourish potassium really do for plants?

I was told to use it in my tank. I have a low tech tank that I just started using excel to combat algae issues. The person told me I need potassium to help my plants grow so it can compete against the algae.

I read on-line from a couple of people that they experienced a jump in their ammonia and nitrate levels after dosing?
Is this right?
