Oh boy... here we go :MoreNutes:

Lots of variables to the question of a nute regimen. First you need to decide what is your end goal, how involved you want to get, how deep your pockets are, are the plants going in or outdoor, organic, chemical, organic based ect ect ect...
Since you admittedly are somewhat new to growing MJ, I would suggest keeping it simple.

Last year I was on a really tight budget and used Age Old Grow, Liquid Karma and Botanicare Bloom... all cheap and ready to use out of the container, no 3 part mixing blah blah!

As w/most anyone else here, I can only offer you my opinion, that's all it is!

Here is a link that may help you figure out the pros and cons of some of the top nutes used pretty extensively, this does not cover homemade organics, just some of the better store bought ones :goodluck:

Easy on the watering and nutrients. You're at more risk of drowning them and over feeding them then you are otherwise.

Clones need to develop their root structure and the soil drying out is what incentivizes them to stretch (grow) in search if water

If your leaves are clipped you may need to consider a humidity dome, or at least make sure they are in a high humidity environment

Nutes should be introduced slowly soas not to burn the babies. All brand name nuts come with feeding schedules.

I second the suggestion that you visit the "how to grow MJ" forum. Read, read, read ;)
