Are Hostas considered an acidic loving plant, and would it be best to plant it with an acidic based planting mix, and fertilize with acidic based foods? Thank You for your help, and your time!!

Hostas thrive where soil is rich and well-draining. Their ideal soil pH ranges from 6.5 to 7.5, which means neutral, slightly acidic or slightly alkaline soils all are suitable.
