Hello everyone, still new to palms.  Whats the correct amount for potted palms.

I’ve watched a few youtube videos and the nursery palms are loaded with fertilizer.  Is it to avoid ther fertilizers from flushing out after the waterings?

Looks like palm gain style fertilizer it is so slow release I'm sure it doesn't hurt lol I use an organic Scott's with kelp and worm castings. 3:2:3 pretty much all I can get in Canada

For pot sizes like the one on the front of the video I use Osmocote Plus Outdoor/indoor and I'd use about 1 of the included red scoops
