That's hard to say. It might result in the plants getting good nutrition one week and not the next.

I wouldn't worry about the iron, just don't overdose either product. Remember. they are not meant to be used together. It's like combining two different medications, they can interact. I wouldn't expect two fertilizers to do this to any extent, so here it is just getting too much of this or that. But it should still be trace amounts which the plants can handle.

I would use up the junk first (unless you don't mind throwing it out of course). You can also report back to us on the plants' response.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
