Yes, you should absolutely raise your GH. If you go to around 6 or so, you'll be able to make most plants happy. You can do that by using Seachem's Equilibrium or something similar.
As far as the macro dosing goes, that may be ok to start with. Get some good test kits and see how much your plants are using. Then adjust your dosage accordingly. By then, you'll get into a routine and not need to test all that much.
Go easy on the kno3 for now, because if that's the level you have, it should be fine. As things, get rolling, that could change. More phosphates would be good. Shoot for about 1-2ppm.
