Thank you for your question. I don't know whether you are growing vegetables, or a lawn, or perennial plants, so there really isn't a 'one size fits all' answer. I'm afraid the best I can do is to refer you to some general sources on gardening in the tropics, and you can decide which are helpful. Here is one on ornamental plants and a second on vegetable gardening. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but with more information from you (including average temperatures and rain now), I am happy to research further. Good luck!

Sorry, I was asking about lawn fertilizer. I live in Beaverton. I believe my grass is rye or fescue.

Okay. Your question indicates you’re in U.S. Minor Outlying Islands. I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

Here is a great OSU Extension article on the subject: Hope it’s helpful. Good luck!
