Ferts for DSM

I am planning on using the dry start method to plant my 55g with HC and would like to know what ferts I should mix in with the substrate to give the HC the best chance possible to carpet quickly.

Eheim Pimp #484
55g High-tech
Ludwigia glandulosa, Hemianthus callitrichoides, Hygrophila lacustris, Echinodorus tenellus, Echinodorus bleheri, aponogeton undulata

I used water from an existing mature tank that had Nitrates at 10 ppm to mist the DSM plants. It worked very well.
