Dont forget Glacial Rock Dust, Granite Rock Dust or Azomite! Also I dont see kelp or alfalfa.

Marine Cuisine Fooled me too for a while but if you read the ingredients its very much not organic.

I do not know about the BioFloral or Botanicar products. As for the neem oil, I use neem oil to foliar spray as a preventative against bugs. I have no experience mixing it into soil or watering with it either. On the other hand, neem meal can be mixed into your soil and used to water, foliar spray, or top dress. You can check out this thread here about neem cake LD seems to have some good information on this stuff.

Made changes
If you already have the Pro-mix use it but if you get a good deal on Coco that's the better medium.

9 gal Coco (pro-mix is mainly Peat moss/perlite) Coco has the best air/water ratio and when it breaks down it gives nutrients to the plants.
2 gal Perlite
2 gal Vermiculite
5 Liter EWC ( I'm a noob also whats this?)
3 Liter Worm Castings
2 Liter Peat moss
3 Liter Compost or Worm Castings
&
8 Tbs seaweed extract (4-2-3)
6 Tbs Mex Bat Guano (10-2-0)
20 Teas Rare Earth ( Rock Dust ?)

I am also new so if someone else can also help out but to me it seems you are over doing the nutes. Worm castings/bat guano/Rockdust/seaweed extract should be more then enough to at least get past the veg stage.

You can add the rock dust to your mix at any time, it doesn't need to cook.
