The Best Fertilizer for Plumerias


The plumeria is a tropical flowering tree that thrives in areas that remain warm year-round. Growing to 30 feet in height, the best way to get your plumeria to bloom is by applying fertilizer.


  • The best fertilizer for plumeria trees is one that is high in phosphorous, such as 10-30-10. A granular formula is preferable to liquid.


  • Fertilize the plumeria every three months beginning in April and ending in August if you live in an area with frosts. Otherwise, continue to fertilize year-round.


  • Use 1 lb. of fertilizer for every inch of trunk diameter. Sprinkle the fertilizer at the drip line and 2 feet beyond.
