Why did Florida Colors Nursery create Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer?

After trying every fertilizer you can think of and searching for Fertilizers specifically formulated for Plumeria and not finding anything worth using, we decided we had to have a professional company help us develop a custom mixed fertilizer. We knew from years of experience that Plumeria does best when you feed them a balanced fertilizer that provides nutrients as Plumeria need them. We believe that healthier plants will result in better growing habits and more blooms.

So to create the best possible fertilizer for Plumeria, we needed to have one formulated to our specifications just for Plumeria. The fertilizer had to have a balance of needed nutrients but also had to have a dependable slow release rate for the entire growing season. We wanted to market nationwide so we choose one of the largest fertilizer companies in the US. After many years of experimenting and research, we came up with a slow released 11-11-14 or 11-11-13 poly coated nutrients with micronutrients that last 6-9 months. The release rate was formulated to release the nutrients as Plumeria needs them over the growing season. The formula is activated by moisture and heat, but mostly by moisture. Releasing more when you water more, minimizes the release rate during dry months and dormancy.

Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer IX and Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer VI are Florida Colors Nursery exclusive custom mixed fertilizers that have been formulated specifically for Plumeria. The ingredients are formulated to provide your plumeria with the nutrients it needs to thrive. The poly cote has been formulated to release the nutrients when plumeria needs it most.

Excalibur is a slow release moisture fertilizer designed to be used once and last 6 months for Excalibur VI or 9 months for Excalibur XI. The reason we produced two different fertilizers was to match the different plumeria growing seasons. For example, Texas and Florida would use 9 month and areas with shorter growing seasons would use 6 month.

Sold online in packages for 1-64oz  and 2-64oz containers. It is also available in larger containers for local pickup only.

Excalibur 11-11-13 is approved for sale in all states in the US.

Typical Usage Rates:

  • 4″ – 5″ pots = 3/4 tablespoons
  • 1 gal pots = 2 tablespoons
  • 3 gal pot = 3 tablespoons
  • 5 gal pot – 4 -6 tablespoons (1 oz = 2 tbsp.)
  • Grown in the ground, use approximately 1 – 2 tablespoons per inch of trunk dia. Depending on how many branches the tree has.

Excalibur is slow release water-soluble granular fertilizer, it is applied dry and must be watered in. It helps to improve efficiency by covering the granules with 1/2″ – 1″ of soil. Granular fertilizers are easier to control because you can actually see how much fertilizer you’re using and where it’s being dispersed. Advantages of slow-release fertilizers are that the nutrients are available gradually over time. This means that the gardener can fertilize less often, and the nutrients are provided slowly and steadily.

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 using a balanced fertilizer with micronutrients for plumeria.

Micronutrients – The Hidden Story…And, Often Only Delivered by Slow Release Fertilizers!

There are several nutrients essential to plant growth and health that are only needed in very small quantities. These are manganese, copper, iron, chlorine, and molybdenum and zinc.

Chlorine is necessary for osmosis and ionic balance; it also plays a role in photosynthesis.

Copper is a component of some enzymes and vitamin A. Symptoms of copper deficiency include browning of leaf tips and chlorosis.

Iron is essential for chlorophyll synthesis, which is why an iron deficiency results in chlorosis.

Manganese 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 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 participates in chlorophyll formation and also activates many enzymes. Symptoms of zinc deficiency include chlorosis and stunted growth.

Boran 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.
