One thing I forgot to mention on dosing is CO2. Carbon is very important to plants - at least ten times more than nitrogen. Most aquatic plants in nature and aquariums are carbon-limited. So CO2 is often the missing link for good plant growth.

On the flip side, too much CO2 has been implicated in dinoflagellate blooms. I think it was a factor in mine.
