You're posting it on the wrong list. No one here talks
about aquatic plants. Its mostly about ethics, lawsuits
and ballasts, with occasional discussions on email viruses. :)

Ok, kidding aside - I'll give it a shot. I may be SO off, that
someone who actually knows what they're talking about may be
compelled to correct me.

I think you may be over dosing K quite a bit. Although
I've read in several places that too much K does not
have detrimental effects, I did have a conversation with
Shawn Prescott about it. He mentioned that some plants
in several of his tanks weren't doing well and he
narrowed it down to excessive K. 
Even if excess K isn't the problem - you're still adding
too much I think.
