This is the stuff i'm using:
Sunniland palm fertilizer contains muriate of potash (MOP) which is bad for bananas and other plants that are sensitive to salt, it is utilize in fertilizers because it's a cheap form of potassium. Fertilizers that contain sulfate of potash (SOP, (K2SO4) or sulfate of potash magnesia (Sul-po-mag, (2MgSO4 • K2SO4) are safe in the correct amount with banana plants.

Always use fertilizers that have less than 2% chlorine (salt).
