What are the magic numbers for fertilizing Adeniums? I have some K-Lite, would that work? If not what numbers do I need to look for?

Chris I use nothing but Excalibur plumeria fertilizer on my adeniums and they grow like weeds. I grew about 100 from seed two years ago but have given away way over half of them. I did ask the company before I used it and he said he had not used it on Adeniums but saw no reason why it would not work. I think it works great.

Do you use the 6 or 9 month release?

I have two questions. I recently was given an Adenium. It dropped all of it's flowers. When should I feed it?

I never heard of Excalibur plumeria fertilizer. Where can I get it?

Many thanks for any help

Linda

I feed all my Adeniums K-Lite. It's an orchid fertilizer however it seems to be working very well for my Adeniums. I feed them weekly with 1/2tsp/gal. For my Plumeria I use Scott's Super Bloom 12-55-6 fertilizer.

Linda Excalibur fertilizer is sold by Florida Colors nursery.

I fertilize in the spring and that is it for the year.
