Fert Confusion...Help!!!!!

I am currently using Seachem Flourish Comprehensive and Flourish Excel.

I have purchased Total substrate Pellets. With these, will this be everything I need for my plants. These are the ingredients:

Chemically Active Ingredients: Hydrated Magnesium sulfate, Potassium nitrate, Potassium sulfate, also trace amounts of; Cobalt EDTA, Copper EDTA, Iron EDTA, Magnesium EDTA, Zinc EDTA, Manganese sulfate, Sodium Borate, Sodium Molybdate, (Chelating Agent: Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)

Physically Active Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) Magnesium Carbonate (MgCO3) Calcium Carbonate Equivalent (CaCO3) Calcium Sulfate (CaSO42H2O)

I also see osmocote mentioned here alot. There are so many types on Amazon, which one do I need? This is alot cheaper.

Then, I buy the gel caps to put it in the substrate?
