U could also make your own if these products are too expensive/unavailable. I used to use about 20 lt high loam/peat potting soil with about 2 lt perlite (for water balnce/ airation) and 300 - 600g blood meal and bone meal. This mix used to give enough nutes for about 4 - 5 weeks in a 8 lt pot before i needed to start adding fertilizers. As long as u adhere to principals u should be fine. Good luck.

I've used happy frog in the past with earth worm casting tea. Only need a
A liquid fertilizer here and there and got me to the end with decent results. It's a good soil to get ur feet wet. The one with mycorrhizae and humic I think it's happy frog potting soil, not the conditioner.

fox farm ocean Forrest or happy frog work great but cut it with ff light warrior it works great not to let the ocean Forrest burn your seedlings.

Ocean forest needs about 40% perlite
