Hello palmgrowers! I've never fertilized my palms before. Can I use this Norwegian granulated fertilizer to fertilize my potted and in-ground palms? And how much do I need of this per palm depending on its size?
Also, I noticed a strange thing - the label in English says this fertilizer's NPK formula is 12-5-15, in other languages its 12-11-18, any idea why is this difference? Thanks
Hello, complete beginner here so I apologize if this questions sound stupid.
I have licuala grandis I purchased last july, and the store I bought said you need to replant in next April or so I have questions about that. Living in Ankara, Turley.
1 - I have some browning/yellowing on the tips only, can I do something about that? What is the probable reasons for that?
2 - My current pot is 25 cm in diameter, so I was thinking getting 35cm in diamater?
3 - Any special kind of soil mixture I need to use for this palm?
4 - Should I use any fertiziler after repotting?
5 - Any advice in general how to take care of better?
Thank you kindly for your answers.

Is this a nutrients deficiency in my Sylvester palms? And do I need to fertilize them more? Or could it be from over/under watering? Also is fertilizing at this time of the year (late Decemeber /early January) bad?
Here in my MD 7a location I usually add about a foot of oak leaf mulch over the roots of my trachys and sabals for the winter. I have about 15 (two cubic foot) bags of hardwood mulch that I never put down this summer. Would it be a good idea to add 3 or 4 inches of this hard wood mulch over the roots of my palms instead of oak leaves? I also cut down about 10 or so musa basjoo banana tree that I cut down for the winter. are these banana leaves good for winter mulch to put of the banana stems for the winter?
Today I went ahead and added some Epsom salt to my arecas and foxtail palm. I was at thinking of adding a light light palm fertilizer to them especially the arecas to keep them nice and green as we just had a cold snap. I am in zone 9B in Tampa. Anyone in 9B or 10A have luck fertilizing palms in the winter? I'm afraid if I do so we will have another borderline freeze the new growth will be more susceptible to be killed.
