My suggestion to someone just getting started is to go ahead and buy liquid fertilizers first.

and see how things go, how much of each you are adding and the plant response.
Then buy the dry ferts and refill the bottles with the same amount of active ingredient. By then you will be much better prepared to alter the formula to suit the way your plants respond.
