@noobgrowerpt it should work fine then but you will probably need nutrients for later on and your gonna wanna go full organic nutrients because salt based nutrient will roast all the living microbes in the soil. But if your looking for if the soil will feed the plant the entire run through I'm not sure....and that could depend on genetics as well because some plants will EAT and others will eat maybe half....so it's a balance game usually lol....fun stuff

So both of those look like they're a standard potting soil mix (peat/compost + drainage) with a little bit of an NPK fertilizer added in. The green one has its NPK content listed - in 1L of soil there is supposedly 3g of 18-8-11 + micro fertilizer - which I assume is a good amount, lol. The yellow bag seems to be the same type of thing, but with much less NPK per L of soil (i.e., 1g = 1000mg, so it would have 0.2-0.19-0.3 if you read it in the same units as the green bag is listed in). So that one will likely need additional fertilizer added sooner as there isn't nearly as much in it as the green bag to begin with. Not to say that you wont need to feed if you use the green bag as well - you likely will eventually. I'm just not really sure what '3.0g/L of 18-8-11 fertilizer' really means in terms of whether or not that will be enough food, and for how long. If that makes sense.

Unit conversion gets friggin confusing though, especially getting into volume.

Basically tho, I think they are basic-style potting soils, with the green one being slightly more fortified than the yellow. Definitely not a 'supersoil' or anything like that.
