Here is a good website.

Use a complete fertilzer. I will recommend to buy yourself some sifted compost and when you repot your plant mix the sifted compost with potting soil.

Also, purchase some liquid seaweed fertilzer and fertilze with that once a week.

Keep in mind that you flower will not be in flower all year long.
