Seachem Dosing

Newbie alert

I was wondering if you guys had any experience dosing Seachem products.

I'm starting a moderately planted (HC carpet, rotala, anubias, needle leaf java fern) tank and was wondering which nutrient is most quickly depleted.

I'm looking at these products to help me get started:
Seachem Iron
Seachem Trace
Seachem Florish (Not Excel)
Seachem Nitrogen
Seachem Phosphorus
Seachem Potassium

I understand that the nitrogen can be supplemented by bio-load, but I'm not sure where the iron supplementation would come in. I also have some Excel to supplement the carbon. But I'm not sure about the rest. I heard that improper dosing for Florish can result in algae blooms.

Now I'm not gonna buy all of these, but I hope you guys have some experiences to share
