Default What would make a good fertilizer starter kit?

I recently set up a planted tank and so far, so good. My plants look like they're doing okay. Some are growing, others not so much, but still look healthy.

I have a CO2 system and and Flourish Excel that I've used periodically.

Now, I'm wondering what I need to do to keep my plants growing and healthy...

Should I be adding also adding phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium? I've read here that is what many others do. I saw an "enhancer kit" from Flourish with these fertilizers. Is a kit like this suitable?

What about root tabs? Would those be an suitable alternative to using a combination of the above chemicals?

I guess what I need to know is what do I do now? Sorry for all the questions but after reading the many posts on fertilizers here, I'm confused.
