ADA Aquasoil Amazonia/ Dosing?

My new 20 gal is set up with ADA Aquasoil Amazonia. I just planted it partially yesterday. What will this soil do for me as far as nutrients go? Does it give the plants what they need, at least for awhile? Would you use Excel? I will have a CO2 set up, but do not have it yet.

Well Carole, I've been doing a lot of research about AS, trying to figure out everything I can before I start cycling my tank this weekend. I talked with Jeff Senske on the phone and got some responses from Tom regarding dosing type questions. Though their respective advice seems somewhat contradictory, Tom does a great job in this post of explaining some of AS's idiosyncrasies (I had to read through it once or twice, but it really helped me make sense of everything)...
In post #20 I try to recount my conversation with Jeff and offer the advice he gave me to post #24, tom further clarifies the information Jeff gave me.
This thread was also invaluable in my quest for information about AS...It's got some god information about plant growth with AS as well...

Hope this helps!
