Fertilizing Your Plumerias – New Customer
One of the questions we get most is “How do I fertilize my Plumeria?”. Fertilization is key to having a beautiful “blooming” plant. Without proper fertilization it’s just a “stick with leaves”! We recommend using a water soluble fertilizer that’s high in phosphorous. All fertilizers list the concentration of the nutrient elements nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (in that order) on the label, otherwise known as N-P-K. Plumerias should be fertilized during the growing season. In Southern California, we recommend feeding your plants at least 1 time per month March through November. Withhold feeding December through February (winter season) because the plant is dormant.
If you purchased our Plumeria food, it’s a brilliant blue in color. No, it is not Miracle-Gro! The blue coloring is a UV protectant. The fertilizer will not spoil, but once mixed should be used immediately. Mixing directions can be found on the label, but we’ve posted them here as well.
To use, add 4 level teaspoons to 1 gallon of water and mix thoroughly. A 1 gallon mixture is enough to feed 4 small plants or 1 large (3 feet or taller) plant. Pre-soak your plants prior to feeding. Apply the mixture directly to the soil at the base of the plant. Our Plumeria food is great for other blooming plants as well, use a half dose (2 level teaspoons per 1 gallon of water) to feed.
