You can offset with superphosphoric acid. This will provide phosphorus in a way that will not disrupt anything too heavily. If you purchase one that is marketed as a "bloom booster" then it will have instructions for mixing. I would start with half the strength of those instructions. Work your way up in 2 weeks if necessary. If this is raw superphosphoric acid, then it will depend on the concentration.
