Post substrate ok?

Hello, I want to start a planted tank and I woukd like to know if floramax from CaribSea is a good starter for a begginer like me. I'm thinking of doing about 2" of floaramax and topping it off with 1" of pea gravel. Is this ok or should I use something eles.

I don't think there is any real reason to layer substrate/use a cap unless you are using something like dirt.

Just do the whole thing with floramax
