plant food spikes suitability

I know that this question has been asked, but I failed to find an answer in
the archives. I am unable to find the ferns and palms Jobe's formulation. I
did, however, find some spikes from Garden Basics (manufactured by Gro Tec
for Wal-Mart) that are formulated at 13-4-5. These spikes nitrogen is 2%
nitrate nitrogen, 2% urea nitrogen, 2% water soluble organic nitrogen, and
7% water insoluble nitrogen. The package states that: "Plant nutrients
derived from Ureaform, Triple Superphosphate and Potassium Nitrate, Chlorine
maximum 0.20%." Are these spikes a suitable substitute for the highly touted
palm and fern spikes by Jobe?
