which fertilizer to use for my tropical fruit plants?

hottielover14January 24, 2007

I have a Vanilla orchid, Banana Tree, Black Pepper Vine, Cocoa Tree, and Miracle Berry tree. Im not sure what fertilizer to get for them? i was thinking about just getting a normal orchid feritilizer like schultz or something. but im not sure what i should use for my other tropical fruit plants, could somebody please help me out?

Each plant has different needs...for example a banana plant needs a fertilizer heavy on the potassium. I have read that cocoa trees need one with more Nitrogen.... not sure about the others....
