Keep in mind that Equilibrium adds potassium and iron in addition to
calcium and magnesium. It could be one of the two former rather than
the latter, the hardness, which you seem to have ruled out through your
test kits (6dGH and 8dKH).
I recall reading somewhere, in these digests or on thekrib.com where the
decaying of old leaves was typically attributed to the lack of
potassium. Good luck and let us know what works for you.
