Taking the literal meaning of the word, it is never appropriate to "overdose" since the word implies providing more than what is actually required. And as we have noted, this can cause various problems.

On a more general sense, adding slightly more than an exactly-measurd 5 ml or whatever is not likely to cause problems. But I wouldn't push this too far.

The principle to be reconized is that a balance between light intensity and nutrients must be present in order for plants to photosynthesize fully. And one of the bst ways to test if sufficient nutrients are present is by observing the response of the plants. And this refers to their appearance, not the rate of growth. If everything is in balance, the plants will appear healthy.
