Pale leaves on H.Glomeratus

Ive added pressurized co2 to the tank recently and plants look to be doing well, by the end of the day some are pearling quite nicely
Ive noticed on my Hemianthus glomeratus that its developing some type of deficiency, mostly on the new growth but also on some older growth the leaves are turning very pale, some leaves look half normal with just half the leaf towards the tip turning very pale.
2x week:
kno3 1/4 tsp
kh2po4 1/8 tsp
micros 1/16 tsp
co2 2bps through intank ceramic diffuser

Could this be a nitrogen deficiency? im thinking i need to up my dosage since im only doing 2x week, the tank also has no fish right now and is fairly heavily planted, i dont have any test kits to check parameters
Also does it matter that i dose micros at the same time as macros? ive read mixed opinions on this
