New to planted. Need help.

I'll get right to it. 10g planted tank?

Will this be enough light to grow. Is it low light??? Or high. http://www.aquatraders.com/LED-Aquar...t-p/56543p.htm

Second. When I get all my plants in will I be OK to just dose with flourish?

Third. Will it be OK to use just eco complete?

Will I need co2? (no proble) tthankzs.

#1 yes
#2 no
#3 yes
#4 already there...some add more...not necessary
Flourish is only Micro nutrients and there is also Macro nutrients

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

If you get each item separately and skip the Epsom salt (If you really need it it is dirt cheap in almost every store that sells any sort of first aid supplies) it would be $30.00. Yes, this much would last a 10 gallon tank a LOOOOOONG time! Of course you could always get another tank...

KNO3
KH2PO4
K2SO4
Plantex CSM+B

Have a look here at TPT in the sales area. I think some people there sell these, too.

Many options on there. Most tap water contains enough GH for a tank.
The GH booster has MGSO4 and CaSO4 in it plus either KNO3 or K2SO4.
If your tank is low GH you can get the GH booster also.
Both the other links are good places for this also.
