Help with dosing please

Hi everyone. Here are my tank specs

4.7 gal cylindrical tank
Aqua solum black humate
Sponge filter
Asta 20 dimmable light on timer 8 hours
Brazilian sword
Ludwiga repens
Rotala indicia
Darf hair grass
Red Root Floaters
Moss ball
Indian leaf

And finally, 1 betta and 4 cherry shrimp

Ill add a photo for visual purposes and my tank is cycled.

Ammonia 0
Ph 7.5
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10

I was shooting for a low tech tank but i keep having problems with the plants melting or turn brown or yellow or holes. Specifically with the ludwiga.

I have little balls of mexican clay under the ludwiga for an iron boost and root tabs under the rooted plants.

I have seachem prime, excel, flourish, iron, trace and use a baby syringe to dose but I dont know if im dosing too much or too little or using the wrong combination of them.

Any advice is super helpful, thanks in advance!!
