Thrive, thrive plus, basically anything from NilocG.
I recommend dry ferts though, cheaper and more efficient. NilocG diy dry EI fertz are amazing. What I use personally.

Flourish is overly expensive, and is good for specific dosing but with what your doing you do not need that.
Seriously flourish is over 100$ for six months on a fifty gallon tank (ex)
Nilo's website forgot to link

All plants need micro's and macro's same "food" but different amounts.

I have been using PPS-Pro from Green Leaf Aquarium (GLA) for the last few years. Very inexpensive and effective. I have not tried EI (Estimative Index) yet.
I've heard nothing but wonderful feedback regarding products from Nilocg.

I dose EI. I tried PPS pro but I switched to EI due to algae issues (was when I was a beginner tho) EI has always worked for me but it focus's more on a heavily planted tank rather than a few plants here and there. I'd say PPS pro would be better for a moderate planted. By heavily planted I mean heavy (a plant every inch of substrate)
