well the introduction of amoniom will cause a surplus of (N) and will cause the growth to be soft and weak.. It might explain some of the soggy feeling lettuce you sometimes get in grocerie stores.. I would also be concerned about a shortened shelf life if the plant is softer.

You may have a good balance to ammonium to prevent the surplus from getting too strong to cause the mooshy lettuce. But when you harvest if you can let us know if there is a shelf life problem
