Don't know if you've found the answer yet, but my advice would be to give them a thorough soak once a week (unless they're in a particularly hot spot, when you might have to do it more often for the summer) - by thorough soak, I mean till the compost's wet and water's running out of the bottom drainage holes. Bear in mind, though, that if you've let them dry out, water will pour out immediately you put it in, and you'll have to water about 3 times in the space of an hour to get it to "reinflate", or put a tray underneath and leave it sitting in that for an hour.
