Micheal,

You can use a regular lawn fertilizer on your mango. Just don't put too much on at one time or you could burn the roots. The fact that leaves are falling off usually indicates the plant is going through a period of time where the soil is either too dry or too wet.

The following website will provide additional information on growing mangoes in Florida:
