Typical Usage Rates:
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
Each 4 lb package contains approximately 120 tablespoons.
Excalibur should be applied dry and for best results covered with about an inch of two of soil for even distribution and watered well to release nutrients.
Excalibur is a controlled release multi coated granular fertilizer designed to release nutrients when plumeria need them during their growing season. The release rate has been calabrated to last approximately 6 months for Excalibur 11-11-14 and 9 months for Excalibur 11-11-13.
How it feeds your plants:
- Application of Water
- Release of Nutrients
- Decomposition of Poly coatings
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 11-11-14 or 11-11-13 Excalibur.
Micronutrients - The Hidden Story...And, 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. 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 of 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.
- Boron 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.

I have been growing Plumeria trees since 1990. Excalibur Plumeria fertilizer has outperformed every Plumeria food (chemical and organic) I have ever used...and I have used a lot! This year marks my second consecutive year of using Excalibur, and the results are wonderful: dark green, healthy leaves, loads of flower inflorescences and new branching. Florida Colors Nursery definitely has a wonderful fertilizer in Excalibur...I'm really glad I found out about it and bought some!
Once a year and you are done. This is the fertilizer of choice for all of the successful plumeria enthusiasts use at SCPL
My favorite fertilizer is Excalibur Plumeria Fertilizer© from Florida Colors. I am currently using the 9-month, slow release, 11-11-13 NPK with enhanced micronutrients. It is a supreme quality fertilizer designed for plumeria. Since the majority of my plumeria collection are in 10-gallon black nursery pots, we apply 8 tablespoons to each in early April. If the trees are not to be repotted that year, we top the fertilizer with an inch or so of soil along with an inch of fresh bark mulch. One advantage of using this slow- release fertilizer is that this is done only once a year—at the beginning of the growing season. I have had excellent results with Excalibur!
I joined the Southern California Plumeria Society last year due to their having their meetings on Zoom due to the virus. In doing so, I've gotten a lot of rave reviews from some of the long time plumeria growers. And the fact that I only have to apply it once a year is a big plus. So, I'm confident I will see good results from this product.
