Special fertilizer for vines?

I was in a garden center and saw a bag of fert that was specifically for vines. Don't remember the N-P-K, but was curious. I use tropical palm and ornamental fert on vines, which has low P. Would a blend like this be better for tropical vines? I would assume so as it was 8 or 10 for P, but just wanted to see if anyone has dxperience with this??

It is good to look at growing living plants from the opposite POV... and ask: "What is a plant's nutritional need at various stages of growth???"

then, find a fertilizer that provides those needs adequately... I imagine that vines would require lots of N and water to grow quickly... but that encourages weak sucker growth and invites insects and diseases...

The daze of,,, "Oh,,, here's a vine fertilizer!!!" are over...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
