These plants are not particularly acid lovers, growing perfectly well in ordinary garden soil. Feed with a general purpose product such as Miracle Gro General purpose or ordinary Phostrogen now, again in a week, and then not again this year. Keep well watered, using tap water if you have no other, it'll be fine, won't affect the plant. Pick off affected leaves - could be bacterial or fungal leaf spot, but this usually occurs when plants have other problems anyway.
