:greenthumb: But be careful: It may grow only if it is getting enough light (now even direct sun).

So it is the 7th leaf! As you can see on the other thread it seems to be quite hard to get a "real" L. insigne at present. – Here the curriculum vitae also of your palm:

      Hola! My name is Paola and I live in Costa Rica.
      Long story short...almost a year ago my partner and I got curious about some massive palms that had a huge flower on top, months later we saw that one of them was bearing fruits, so we started researching on the internet because it was not a common species found in our country, so we found out that these palms where possibly Talipot palms or Corypha umbraculifera, due to the characteristics that they had. Not so many people know about this here in our country, so this exclusive event of nature, ended up not being noticed, and the neighbors didn’t got too impressed either. We also read about the unique way in which they reproduce, so we felt that we had to honor this palm genetics, so we gathered a lot of seeds, and seedlings that where germinating under the dying palm mom. 
      Since these palms are not native to Costa Rica, we wanted to understand a bit more of how they got here to the pacific coast of costa rica, so if someone has knowledge about this it would be interesting to know the history if these amazing palms.
      Also, we are just nature and plant lovers, so we don’t have any experience on growing these type of palms, so we would appreciate if anyone has recommendations about light exposure, fertilizers, or any tips that you can give us, so we can get to have them healthy and growing in good conditions.
      And since it is so hard to reproduce these beautiful palms, do you guys know if there is any conservation program for these species? Or if you think they can be transported to a specialized nursery or something like that?
      Any comments would be appreciated.
      I will attach some pictures, from the adult palms as well as the seedlings and young palms, I just feel they are magnificent and they need to be admired:

      The area underneath my bodacious and productive royal palm is packed with seedlings that germinated 6 to 8 months ago. Fall starts tomorrow and they can't stay there over the winter. If I can't find them new homes, I'll send them to the compost pile. People on PT have told me how difficult royal palms are to find - I got more than I can handle. So, I am selling them for $0.25 (a quarter) each. And they won't be tiny spikes - they will range from approx. 10" to 20" tall with established roots and 1-3 strap leaves. If you want to establish a grove of royals, start a royal nursery or gift friends and family with them, now is your chance to buy them in bulk. See below:
      Roystonea regia 10-20" tall seedlings: $0.25 each
      Shipping: to be quoted based on number of seedlings and destination (min $10.00) via Priority Mail.  No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI.
      TOTAL: To be Determined
      Payment via Paypal
      PM me if you are interested
      Sale lasts until seedlings are all sold or I send them to compost

      I have many more seedlings coming up in our yard - this time it's Ptychosperma sp Robusta. If I can't find them new homes, they end up on the compost pile. I was sold the mother of these seedlings under the name "Ptychosperma robusta". But I can find no information about this palm or whether its name is valid and no one who has seen it or its photos can tell me what it is. I can confirm that this palm is as advertised: robust, sturdy and very fast growing. Its ripe seeds are red. It clusters but not heavily and I remove the offsets as they come on. It is one of the tallest palms in my jungle, rivaled only by the Veitchias. It has no issues with my climate and takes full FL sun. This is one tough Ptycho - whatever it is.
      Ptychosperma sp Robusta newly germinated seedlings: $0.10 each (minimum purchase = $5.00)
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail for up to 300 seedlings.        No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI
      TOTAL = TBD
