The answer to your fertilization question is in the Arisaema-L archives
which is keyword searchable. The main precaution is DO NOT USE
OSMOCOTE!!!! There is a long thread about this in the archives.

On moving size, the seedlings will make roots that are several inches
long. Move them when they don't have enough root room. I start the seeds
with the Deno method and plant the germinated (root radicle showing) seed
directly into 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 3 5/8 pots, several to a pot. That way I
don't damage the roots trying to move them from cells to pots.

When I used cells, I found roots out the bottom and into the wicking mat
after only a couple of months. Once into the mat, they're almost
impossible to untangle.
