HVH Acid-Blend Fertilizer


HVH Acid-Blend Hibiscus Fertilizer
The HVH Acid-Blend Fertilizer is a specially-designed formula for hibiscus growing in places where water is mildly-moderately alkaline or has a high pH. This fertilizer has all the ingredients that our regular HVH Special-Blend Fertilizer has, plus the extra acidifying properties that many of our fellow hibiscus growers need to correct water problems. This acidifying formula will help stubbornly pale or yellowish hibiscus plants absorb more nutrients, build more chlorophyll, turning leaves a deeper, darker green.

For people with very mildly elevated alkalinity (just over 100 ppm), use the HVH Acid-Blend Fertilizer once or twice a month, or roughly every other time you fertilize. For higher alkalinity levels, use the HVH Acid-Blend Fertilizer every time you fertilize.

We offer the fertilizer in several popular sizes. A 1.5-lb container should take care of 2-4 tropical hibiscus (5-6 in 8-10" pots) for a year or longer. A 3-lb container will care for 4-8 hibiscus for a year. If you have more hibiscus, we also have a 10-lb size bag, and a 25-lb bag.
