Definitely a mildstone. Keep it moist this winter. Its very vulnerable to dry soil indoors when its small. But they grow fast once they get adult fronds and in about 3 years, it will definitely be a noticeable and beautiful palm. I dont usually have enough patience to start palms from seed, but the ones I have grown from small seedlings have always been my favorites just because I have seen them grow and develop.

Keep us updated.
