JM soil variations by region?

Well I just registered to the forum after reading and reading... And reading. It seems not a lot of growers occupy my area (little rock, Arkansas). I've learned of so many types of soil mixtures for containerized JMs. My question though being- is there any professional advice on a soil recipe for containers in my area... My very humid and hot and crazy weather region.
I have many maples right now in a mix I have made including:
6 parts sifted pine bark mulch
4 parts expanded shale
3 parts earthworm castings
2 parts sphagnum peat moss
Used coffee as top dressing a couple times a month
Oh and a lil perlite to taste...

The "Container Gardening" forum here has more useful information on that topic than anywhere else on earth.
Seriously :)
