TreeHelp Palm Tree Potassium Spikes should be used to treat potassium deficiencies in your palm tree.
Symptoms of Potassium Deficiency:
Potassium deficiency is characterized by yellow, orange or brown flecks and necrotic margins of older leaves. Withering ("frizzling") begins on these older leaves first. From a distance these leaves often appear brown or orange in color. If deficiency is severe enough, new shoots will eventually be affected. If unattended, the palm may die. Curing the potassium deficiency can lead to magnesium deficiency. To balance, potassium and magnesium should be applied together. Potassium deficiency is common in most species of palms in Florida.
Benefits of TreeHelp Palm Tree Potassium Spikes:
