Fertilizer packs for hanging plants

Asked February 18, 2018, 6:24 PM EST

When buying hanging plants at garden centers I've noticed fertilizer packs within the pots. This year I'm planning to make up my own hanging pots, and would like to use these small fertilizer packs. I've found two online and the formula of fertilizer is 16-8-8 and I believe 8-8-8. What kind of ratio should I be looking for? I appreciate your help.
