i could very well be mis identifying this as an offset but just curious if anyone has seen offsets on their foxtails

I'm not sure what that plant is, but I haven't heard of Foxtails producing offsets.  I have ~10 in my yard and they are all solitary.  Their seeds are apparently prolific though, so it could be a seedling popping up.  It looks more like a weed of some sort to me.  :)

That seedling plant looks like a dicot, not a monocot palm.   I don't believe that Wodyetia can produce a second stem from the same root.  :)

I have grown foxtails from seeds. They don’t look like that. Not sure what those are sorry. Could always let it grow and see :)

A gentle tug and I bet those seedlings would put out easily. An offset, if possible on a Wodyetia, would be very difficult to pull.

Looks like maybe a peanut plant!  Fun to grow, especially if you have kids in your household.

As richnorm stated, it’s likely peanut seedlings popping up in that pot.
