Go get yourself some liquid potassium and magnesium and mix the proper dosage with water and 20/20/20.
I have the same problem here.
That works and it is amazing for palms too.

Could it need more space? Is the ---erghh, the pink flowered guy in the background of the picture, taking over with its' root system?

I know what that is, the name's just gone into that mind pit that opens right before I call the name.

No don't think space is the problem. Bought some 20/20/20 today but couldn't find any potasium/magnesiaum any alternatives?. Here in the 3rd world people don't care all that much about their gardens
