An application of an acid fertilizer in the spring with a ratio of 4-8-8 is beneficial. Many times a Palm fertilizer is used for Ixora.
You can also add 3 to 4 inches of composted manure in the spring around the base of the plants.
This will help maintain the ph level.
You need to make sure the cow manure is properly composted. If it has to high of Nitrogen levels, this will inhibit flower production.
