do you have planted aquarium gravel? Those are always handy, maybe buy some fertilizer, i think fish_4_all has a list of dry chemicals to buy, it seems like its a lot of stuff to buy but fish_4_all said it will save money in the long run, i see no reason not to trust that.
Pruning materials isnt so bad if you dont want to get your hands wet by putting your hand in to cut the leaves.
As for the filter media, sponges and/or water polisher, as blue said activated carbon can remove nutrients from the plants. Zeolite is a big no no unless something happened to your tank. Im guessing you have a canister filter, fill the bottom with a porous sponge, then the middle with filter floss to polish the water, then the top with bio-balls or some sort of material that has a large surface area.
