Has anyone had a great deal of success with plants like Ludwigia cuba, Eusteralis, Rotala green, Micranthermum umbrosum, and Glosso with only substrate fertilization?

I was thinking about this a lot lately since i recently have gotten bad green fluffy algae (My name for it at least) and i had greenwater a while back.

Here is my plan. K2s04 and heavy traces (1/8 tbs Plantex csm+B 3 times a week). added to water column. And EW castings in the substrate.

Any idea how long this might last? 6months? a year? 2lbs of EW castings are on the bottom 3/4 of the tank. 50 gallons.

Well i was going to add Potassium and traces to the water column.

What do you think about this, i've been doing it for a week in my 50gallon.

1/8tbs of KNO3 3x a week, 1/8tbs plantex csm+b 2x a week with speratic 1/16tbs. Also 1/64tbs of KH2PO4 2x a week. Fish load is moderately to high, and plants are pretty dense. Will this work in your opinion?
