Rhododendrons – is a crystalline fertilizer to be dissolved in water. Designed to feed all varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas and other representatives of acidophilic plants. It can be used in the cultivation of other plants from the heather family, e.g. heather, heather, blueberry, gauteria, pieris, kalmi, skimia and others. Crystalline fertilizers are intervention fertilizers – they immediately replenish nutrient deficiencies thanks to minerals that are available to plants in easily digestible forms.
Due to the content of appropriate nitrogen forms, the fertilizer affects the acidification of the substrate, which improves the conditions for the development of acidophilic plants. In their proper reaction, they are able to take up all the nutrients. Heather plants often suffer from iron deficiency, which is only available to them in an acidic environment. The symptom is interveinal chlorosis – yellow discoloration on the leaves. The fertilizer replenishes these deficiencies and facilitates its absorption, so the rhododendrons recover. A shortage of other nutrients disrupts plant development to such an extent that they may even stop flowering. Plants properly nourished during the growing season develop a large number of flower buds that will bloom next season. Systematically used fertilizer will also increase the frost resistance of plants and ensure better water storage in evergreen leaves.
Fertilize every 14 days from March to the end of August. Use by watering, after thorough dilution in water in the ratio: 1 teaspoon of fertilizer per 5 liters of water (1 g of fertilizer per 1 liter of water). For every 1 meter
the height / diameter of the plant crown, use 5 grams of fertilizer. In the case of plants in the flowering phase, it is recommended to double the dose or apply the fertilizer every 7 days. It is best to use a watering can without a strainer for fertilization. When watering flowering plants, try not to water the flowers. The recommended doses should not be exceeded, because the fertilizer is highly condensed. This fertilizer can also be used in drip irrigation systems.
