First Planted Tank

Hi I'm new to planted tanks. I'm not sure what nutrients or fertilizers I should use. I have a 90g tank and I want to grow baby tears , swords and crypts. What should I use right now I'm using co2 and Flourish. Should I use root tabs or something else?

A 90G is a big tank to be using Flourish. Spend some money on dry ferts which is cheaper in the long run. EI and PPS are pretty common fert methods; you can find several how-to's with Google. Root tabs are fine too.
