It seems that maybe you are mixing two different methods. You are
adding KNO3 3x a week, yet not wanting to do water changes? Dosing
nutrients at relatively high levels should be accompanied by WEEKLY
water changes. If you only want to do changes every 2-3 weeks, try
adding small amounts of KNO3 once a week.
