Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer
(NPK with micronutrients)
50lb bags are ‘In Nursery Pick Up Only‘ at Florida Colors Nursery in Homestead, Florida!
Comes in 50 lb bag only.
Florida Colors Nursery was able to formulate a supreme-quality fertilizer for fast release, 6 month and a 9 month formular designed specifically for plumeria. With Excalibur your plumerias are receiving supreme-quality fertilizers and service from a plumeria grower you know and can trust.
Excalibur is a custom mixed fertilizer controlled release technology formulated specifically for when Plumeria need extra nutrients. Excalibur is tested at 86 degrees, not 70 degrees. Excalibur a combination of Multi-coat and Poly-coat technology to achieve the release rate, which is moisture and heat activated and is based on osmosis.
Caution: Do not apply in direct contact with trunk. Works best when applied as a side dressing.
Typical Usage Rates:
Caution: Do not apply in direct contact with trunk. Works best when applied as a side dressing mixed into the top layer of the soil.
This should help you calculate how much fertilizer you need for your plumeria.
- 4-4 1/2″ pot = 3/4 tablespoon
- 6″ – 1 gal pot = 1-2 tablespoons
- 8” – 3 gal pot = 3 tablespoons
Excalibur is granuar fertilizer that lasts 2 to 9 months depending on the one you use. Water well with warm temps to release nutrients.
Excalibur is a slow release multi coated granular fertilizer designed to release nutrients when plumeria need them.
Excalibur BOOST is applied dry and is best to cover with about an inch of two of soil for even distribution. Excalibur BOOST is water soluable and needs water to release nutrients.
How it feeds your plants:
- Application of Water
- Release of Nutrients
- Decomposition of coating
The nutrients are available gradually over a pre determined time frame, base on the formula you select. The nutrients from Excalibur are provided steadily over 2 – 9 months (depending on how much you have to water). This is how most plants prefer to be fed and helps them grow well. Granular fertilizers are easier to control because you can actually see how much fertilizer you’re using and where it’s being dispersed.
Fertilizers are a mix of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). The ratio will be indicated by three numbers (the first is nitrogen, the middle number is phosphorous, and the third is potassium). We recommend a balanced fertilizer with micronutrients for plumeria.
Micronutrients – The Hidden Story…Often Only Delivered by Controlled Release Fertilizers!
There are several nutrients essential to plant growth and health that are only needed in very small quantities.
- Magnesium (Mg) is an essential plant nutrient. It has a wide range of key roles in many plant functions. One of the magnesium’s well-known roles is in the photosynthesis process, as it is a building block of the Chlorophyll, which makes leaves appear green.
- Sulphur (S)helps form important enzymes and assists in the formation of plant proteins. It is needed in very low amounts, but deficiencies can cause serious plant health problems and loss of vitality.
- Boron (B) plays a vital role in a diverse range of plant functions including cell wall formation and stability, maintenance of structural and functional integrity of biological membranes, movement of sugar or energy into growing parts of plants, and POLLINATION and SEED SET.
- Copper (Cu) is a component of some enzymes and of vitamin A. Symptoms of copper deficiency include browning of leaf tips and chlorosis.
- Iron (Fe) is essential for chlorophyll synthesis, which is why an iron deficiency results in chlorosis.
- Manganese (Mn) activates some important enzymes involved in chlorophyll formation. Manganese deficient plants will develop chlorosis between the veins of its leaves. The availability of manganese is partially dependent on soil pH.
- Molybdenum (Mo) is essential to plant health. Molybdenum is used by plants to reduce nitrates into usable forms. Some plants use it for nitrogen fixation, thus it may need to be added to some soils before seeding legumes.
- Zinc (Zn) participates in chlorophyll formation, and also activates many enzymes. Symptoms of zinc deficiency include chlorosis and stunted growth.
