  fertilizer
From: "Steve Hatfield" sehatfield at insightbb.com> on 2006.06.15 at 15:45:52(14352)
Hello all

Been pretty quiet here lately What does everyone use to
fertilize their Amorpho’s?? I started with Miracle grow potting mix with
added pearlite (spelling?) so I have some fertilizer to start with but what
should I use for maximum tuber growth??

Thanks Steve

Hi Steve, I would recommend a balanced fertilizer during the first 1/2 of the growing season and then switching to a fertilizer high in phosphorus, such as a 10-30-10 NPK ratio. Many of these fertilizers are sold as blossom booster formulas. Good for flowers, but the phosphorus is also good for the roots, or in the case of Amorphophallus, corms/tubers. You may also want to consider adding bone meal to your mix. It is a nice organic source of phosphorus and calcium.
