No Phos for my plants!?!? How do I save them!

19 years ago

I just discovered (can someone confirm?) that Australian plants need NO or VERY LITTLE phos in the fertilizer. When I put them in I am terribly afraid I used something like 7-7-7. I only have Kangaroo Paw and some Cat's claw (that is looking very puny, actually...) Should I dig them up, rinse off roots, replant, etc...or just leach out current fertilizer with slow trickle of water (overnight? long?...)

Does this combination make it too hard to plant with flowering plants (I do not use high phos to force blooms)...are they best kept in containers? Can they tolerate a 5-3-7 or something like that?

Any help would be lovely,
