I did a NPT (Walstad style) using Miracle Grow Organic Choice Potting Soil. Testing doesn't bother me when I have the time and excel is used to track the results. Detailed in the build thread is whats and how much.
Lighting, dirt, type of plants, water changes and tested parameters. The thread has all the tracking information through the point where everything stabilized to just adding water to make up for evaporation and trimming plants.

Hope it helps.
