Plants will also appreciate food! There are two main types of supplements; liquid and root tabs. Root tabs are great for those plants who get all their nutrients from their roots such as Swords and Cryptocorynes along with water Wisteria partially. And then liquid is mainly for those who take from the water column such as water sprite, anacharis and other stem plants. Water wisteria will take from both although it primarily takes from the water column. However, adding root tabs when you don't exactly have anything planted (anubias and java fern should be tied to something as you put it on your driftwood ^_^) then it would be silly to add root tabs unless you bought some stem plants as well. I recommend SeaChem Flourish Comprensive for a great all-in-one liquid fertilizer. I use it biweekly but a little less than recommended for the week. I also have more extensively planted tanks though so you could use something like 1-2 drops per gallon twice or once a week if you like. In the end, you just have to figure out how much food your plants will soak up before you start growing algae, so start small and see what works with your plants.
Best info EVER!

I have the SeaChem Flourish Comprensive but figured I don't need root tabs. I have an NPL so I don't need to use them right? I feed my plants once a week and it seems to be doing just fine. do Dwarf hair grass thrive on SeaChem Flourish Comprensive?

Haha, glad to help!

Do you mean NPT? If so then yes you won't need root tabs. I prefer to split the Flourish up for twice a week dosing so that means the plants will have a more constant food source rather than once a week. Dwarf hairgrass will be fine with just Flourish in an NPT although it may not grow the best without co2 addition is all but it shouldn't die on you.

HAHAHAHAHA yeah oops NPT XD
thanks for the input. =)
