Question Ferts, ferts and more ferts!!

Hi all. Being new to the hobby, I have what many might think is a dumb question?
How do I know which fertilizers/nutrient supplements/trace elements I need to use? It just seems that there are SO many different products available. Know what I mean?
I currently use Seachem Flourish and Tetra Flora Pride intermittently.
Is there a general rule regarding how much of each nutrient is needed by our precious plants? Or how much to dose?
