2.5 gallons of EWC
6 TBL greensand
6 TBL rock phosphate
10 TBL dolomite lime
5 TBL blood meal
10 TBL bone meal

I would get kelp meal for sure, and just use the quano with top dressing if necessary.

You don't have any potassium. Greensand won't cut it.
Get some kelp/seaweed and pick a recipe from the Beginners STICKY.

2.5 gallons of EWC on top of the 5 gallons you already have.\

What I mean is you need about 30% EWC, so in a 5 gallon bucket about 1.5 gallons or so. Kelp meal is necessary, you can get it here, with free shipping.....

Revision from above post would be:

5 gallons of mix should be:

2 gallons EWC
1 gallon Perlite
2 gallons nursery mix

To this 5 gallons add:

5 TBL blood meal
10 TBL bone meal
5 TBL kelp meal
10 TBL dolomite lime
5 TBL soft rock phosphate
5 TBL greensand

Let mix sit for 2-4 weeks after moistening it, not wetting it!

That mix alone should be adequate enough to get you a healthy harvest. You can incorporate ACT teas etc later on if you feel the need.

Obviously make sure that there is no chlorine in your tap water by letting it sit out/filter out. Easy as that, get you buds like this:
