Question Dirted Aquariums & Parameters?

I love aquatic plants and eventually would like to try a dirted aquarium to try to improve growth and rooting, however, I was wondering how much of an impact dirt has on things like the PH and TDS? I've researched the basics of setting up a dirted aquarium, but I never see much information on those factors. I assume it may vary based on the actual soil used? Or would I be wrong? I would definitely need to do more research before trying it myself.

The dirt I saw recommended in one guide is FoxFarm Potting Soil, if that offers any idea.
