New home for my Arisaema's

Moving to a new home, I had to leave my greenhouse behind and start my  Arisaema's  in a new location.  Luckily, I am using these large storage bins for my tubers.  The bins dimensions are 18"x18"x8"  in length.  They may be 6 inches deep, but on the base of the bins, they have numerous holes for drainage and for the roots to trail down.  They are made of plastic.  I noticed the Rhody Species Foundation (Steve Hootman), using them for his collection, so I started using them.

Here is the question, I've buried these bins in topsoil to the rim and the medium I have is your standard soiless mix.   What type of fertilizer would you recommend me using and how often?

Also, I would recommend submitting URL's to Dmoz.  Most of the major search engines use them. <>
