Miracid and Container Citrus

gobluedog(5)March 13, 2013

Will Miracid water soluble 30-10-10 be beneficial for my Cictrus in Containers? 2 Orange 1 Lemon ? I bought it for my Hydrangeas, someone told me that Citrus like Acidic Soil. I have my other Miracle-Gro 24-6-16 Zone 6

Four Winds actually recommends Miracid as a container fert for citrus. Its suitable, and acidifies the water which is beneficial for the citrus. I've used Miracid and DynaGrow Foliage Pro, and I've had better results with the Foliage Pro (with a tsp of vinegar/gallon water). The Foliage Pro delivers the macronutrients in the exact ratio your plant will consume them, and also contains all of the micronutrients/minerals including Calcium that Miracid does not. Its not cheap but an 8oz bottle will go a long way, considering a 1/4tsp/gallon recommended dosage.
