some weird crap happened to one of my Annona muricata one time ( a seedling, branched all crazy, too much fert.) grew out of it though.

So I'm guessing most annonas, like sugar apple and cherimoya would be to.

Also noticed papaya can be sensitive

and also even passion fruit, if over fertilized will make all vegetative growth...
same for lychee and mango...and others to!

Know when and what to put on which tree and why.  ;)

Easier typed than tasked. ;D

It's easy to kill plants with the super high dose triple 16 or triple 24 chemical ferts, especially small plants. If you want to go synthetic fert always use pelleted slow release: like nutricote or osmocote. I've also used chicken manure on pots with a lot of success. I like Stutzman's because it doesn't smell so bad, and with 3-2-2 it's much harder to burn a plant crispy! Always better to feed a plant often and LIGHTLY than to feed irregularly and heavily. Plants don't like the feast or famine syndrome. They like regular meals....just like us!  ;D

oops, didn't really answer your question. Some trees really sensitive to chemical ferts are mangosteen and rambutan. I notice they prefer organic ferts...slow and steady kind of feeding. No big dumps of food.

it's overkill is what it is.  i'm not writing a research paper on a forum, so not everything has to be nice and neat. >:(

Your subject simply said "fertilizer". I thought that was too broad because it did not say what about "fertilizer". It makes it easier for people to read the forum and pick what topics they open with more descriptive subjects.

Any slow release fertilizer is best for sensitive plants like dynamite.

the people can read what they choose to read, if they don't like fertilizer, then they won't click on it. :blank:

Lychees can definitely be fertilizer sensitive especially when they are small and I've also read that Avocado's don't like too much fertilizer.
