I'd have to agree with Fendor, do not add fertilizer in the form of Nitrates or phosphates. Perhaps you meant plant supplements such as Seachem Flourish or Tetra's Flora Pride? That would be fine. You'd just be establishing a good base of micronutrients that the plants need. But for their core need for nitrogen - the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate being developed in a new tank should be plenty.
Planted tanks take patience. Only now, after 2 1/2 years, is my planted tank fully coming into all its glory. Naturally, it shouldn't take that long, though, if conditions are right.
