Excalibur BOOST Plumeria Fertilizer
(10-12-14 with micronutrients)

Free shipping!

Florida Colors Nursery is following up the successful launch of Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer© formulated with the Excalibur BOOST Fertilizer, a specific-use product with an NPK of 10-12-14 designed specifically for plumeria. Excalibur BOOST is another supreme-quality fertilizer from the team at Florida Colors.

Excalibur BOOST is designed to give plumeria that extra kick of important nutrients when they need it most:

  • After severe weather events (extended rain or heat waves).
  • After re-potting or transplanting, to minimize transplant shock.
  • After cuttings have rooted, promoting faster root growth.
  • After transplanting seedlings into pots.
  • After grafting to promote faster healing.

These are scenarios when a plant can be at its weakest and most vulnerable. BOOST uses a faster release process, with some nutrients formulated for a very quick boost and others releasing over a few months.

You can use BOOST without our regular Excalibur or with Excalibur (if applied 2 months or more after the initial application).

Excalibur BOOST is a custom-mixed fertilizer using water and controlled-release technology formulated specifically for when your plumeria needs extra nutrients. Excalibur is tested at 86 degrees, not 70 degrees, so it's longer-lasting. Excalibur BOOST uses a combination of multi-coat and poly-coat technology to achieve the release rate, which is moisture-activated and based on osmosis. Excalibur BOOST Plumeria Fertilizer (10-12-14 with micro nutrients)

Contains 1-4 lb resealable bag.

Florida Colors Nursery was able to formulate a supreme-quality fertilizer BOOST with an NPK of 10-13-14 designed specifically for plumeria. With Excalibur BOOST your plumerias are receiving supreme-quality fertilizers and service from a plumeria grower you know and can trust.

Excalibur BOOST is applied dry and is best to cover with about an inch of two of soil for even distribution, it needs water to release nutrients. Designed to take in the with the water and warmth requirements of plumeria.  

Excalibur is a controlled release multi coated fertilizer designed to last approximately 6 months for Excalibur VI and 9 months for Excalibur IX (depending on which you use). 

How it feeds your plants:

  • Application of Water
  • Release of Nutrients
  • Decomposition of Poly coating

Advantages of controlled 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. 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 with a NPK of 10-12-14 Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer BOOST. 

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.

    I have used the other Excalibur products and was very pleased with my plumeria blooms this year.
