Monopotassium Phosphate 0-52-34 FAQ

1. Should I use this product, or a Sulfur-based product if my soil is deficient in Potassium?

It depends on a few different factors: 
1. Do you need to adjust the pH level in your soil? Sulfur in Potassium Sulfate will lower the pH level. 
2. Do you also need phosphorus? If you don't need phosphorus this would be a more costly product for something you don't need. 
3. You could also use Potassium Chloride which does not have sulfur or phosphorus but what you are growing might be sensitive to chlorine.


2. Can I use this product on grass? The centipede that is starting to come out of the dormant stage.

Yes, you can. However, this is usually used on blooming plants and I would recommend using a fertilizer with a high percentage of Nitrogen such as Ammonium Sulfate (21% Nitrogen) or Urea (46% Nitrogen) on your grass.


3. How often should I apply Monopotassium Phosphate to my plants?

It depends on what you are growing, what stage your plants are in, and your soil analysis (or desired PPM for hydroponics). However, we recommend once every 4-6 weeks in most cases for the maintenance purposes.


4. Can I add Monopotassium Phosphate to other liquid fertilizers or herbicides?

It really depends on what other fertilizers or herbicides you are adding this to. Monopotassium Phosphate is highly water soluble and compatible with most of the liquid fertilizers.

However, you need to refer to your herbicide's label to find out if it's safe and compatible with Monopotassium Phosphate.


5. How much Phosphate and Potassium are available in Monopotassium Phosphate?

Monopotassium Phosphate 0-52-34 (MKP) contains 52% Phosphorus and 34% Potassium.


6. Can I use Monopotassium Phosphate on Adeniums?

Yes, Monopotassium Phosphate is suitable for any bloomings plants. There are some speciality fertilizers for succulents but if your plants need some extra boost of Potassium and Phosphorus for blooming time then this is a great product.


7. Is Monopotassium Phosphate same as Ammonium Hydrogen Phosphate?

No, it is not the same product. However, if you are looking for a product with Ammonical Nitrogen and Phosphate then I recommend Monoammonium Phosphate. Below are the links to water soluble and regular Monoammonium Phosphate:
