I've been wanting to go out and take photos since New Years but have been recovering from major surgery. I'm up and around for now and have decided to do a photo layout of some of the palm seedlings I've grown from seeds over the past couple years. The list is not comprehensive and includes a Dypsis and Cham turckheimii I bought rather than germinated. Most everybody has seen photos of mature palms but few of us have seen them as small seedlings or juveniles.
1. Ptychosperma sp 'Cartegna'
2. Dypsis ifanadianae w/heel
3. Drymophloeous oliviformis
4. Ptychosperma microcarpum
5. Chamaedorea alternans
6. Ptychosperma unk sp Australia
7. Chamaedorea tuerckheimii
8. Cyphophoenix elegans
9. Howea forsteriana
10. Licuala fordiana
11. Licuala lauterbachii
12. Pinanga maculata
13. Hydriastele dransfieldii
14. Carpoxylon macrospermum
15. Chamaedorea geoniformis
16. Brassiophoenix schumannii
17. Areca catechu dwarf x Areca macrocalyx
18. Chamaedorea arenbergiana variegated

I really need to clean up my seedling inventory!
Chambeyronia macrocarpa "watermelon." These are from Colin Peters in Hawaii and will be gorgeous. The sizes vary. $5/each. Will ship to lower 48 in bulk if requested. I probably have a dozen or two.
Archontophoenix myolensis. These are ready to go in the ground and explode. $20/each for pick-up. Have 3 or 4.
Local pickup is preferred, if you're interested in multiple, make me an offer!

I have come across following information in a web plant shop:
Under the light of previous information, I have observed some microspadix specimens from seeds gathered in a botanical garden in Florida and compared them with plants of same sp already existing in my garden. The floridian plants do produce fruits, which turn from green to yellow and have thicker stems tending to become taller.
One fruit of it has also a bloom
On the other hand preexisting plants are of smaller stature with thinner stems and bear fruit, which turn from green to orange.
Initially I had been thinking, whether floridian plants are hybrids. But after having read the on line catalogue of the plant shop, I must think also about the possibility of two distinct varieties. Can anyone provide more information on this issue?
