Need ferts...not sure where to start...

I am running carbon on my 75g tank at the moment to remove meds so I know any bit of nutrients are also being removed. I am using sand substrate and rocks for my hardscape. Basically I have nothing in the tank that offers any nutrients. Right now in the tank is an Amazon Sword, a couple anubias, some Java Fern, and I plan on getting a bunch of C. wendii. So I know I have a combo of root and leaf feeders. I want to stay simple, I have low/med lights and right now I want to stay away from CO2. I also plan to have shrimp and fish and MTSnails...but at the moment the tank is empty of livestock.

Take a look at Seachem Flourish. It is a popular liquid fert. The same company makes root tabs as well.

lots of people here use flourish - make sure you get Flourish Comprehensive (they have a number of products)

I agree, Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive Supplement. Dose once a week should be sufficient.
