Mineralized soil how long do I need to wait before dosing with potassium?

So finally my plants are here and everything is planted. My java fern attached to rock along with some java moss, Anubias 'nana' & some more java moss attached to driftwood. The other plants I got in the tank are water sprite, ludwigia repens and ludwigia narrow leaf and some glosso. I have MS covered with some color quarts. I just want my plants to be happy, so how long do I need to wait before dosing with potassium? Do I need to dose anything else?
I know I asked it before but I just want to be sure.
Thanks

funkyfish,
from what I understand the muriate of potash could last up to 6-8 months. I would watch your plants closely. I will be a little while before you need to dose, and then only in small amounts.

I knew it was something like 3-5 months just wanted to make sure.
I really like the no dosing part

Look for potassium deficiencies to appear in 3-6 months. Symptoms include mild chlorosis, tiny pin holes in leaves, and yellowing older leaves.
