Default Oranic Composting.

Is the way I go, but you would have to find a nursery that either
a. Makes it themselves
b. Has some to buy
c. or knows somewhere or someone who has it.

Cheers

Default just make it yourself...

you get better cleaner and more environmentally friendly when you create your own fertilizer, however the blend you have is good...

That will work but some palm trees need more of certain ingredients but that will do just fine.

Default The fungi is called Mycohorrizal Fungi...

And I think this site sells the Fungi as well. It does work miracles because it helps the root system grow more roots and expand feeding the palm more nutrients which in turn makes the palm greener and happier.

Default Is that Fertilizer good

for small Palm trees like baby ones? I heard that it kills the baby ones because the root system has not fully developed???

Default I just bought that Myco Fungi

I placed it on the side of the root of my palm. My palm looks like it was having a hard time since i brought it into the living room. So hopefully if the Myco works as good as it says it does then it might get better... hopefully soon!!!

No, no, no. 7-3-7 will not work. You can use it temporarily but it won't have the magnesium, potasium, etc that palms need. You must use a palm specific fertilizer. Regular ones will not work. You can get some on this site and Miracle Grow makes one, too.
