That Jubaea looks a little Butia-ish to me. 

I know. No spines on the petioles and was given to me from the owner of one of the local palm nurseries who do sell a fair amount of a Jubaeas. Trunk in person looks different from Butia. It has also developed that bluish color this year. 
 

if you see videos of Banana Joe’s Jubaeas they are similar looking to mine. His are even more pendulous.

I can say I keep looking at this palm all the time because I do agree it does look very Butia-ish.  It puts out one frond at a time whereas I find my butias put two fronds out at once on opposite sides almost like a mirroring effect.  I guess only time will tell. 

The other Jubaeas I have are all quite small so I don't have a good comparison.  I have one seedling in the ground and its in full sun with very stiff, short fronds, that are only 3-4" long.   Originally the fronds were 6"+ or so but it stopped putting these longer ones out immediately after planting.  It looks kind of odd to be honest.  This has been in the ground one year and did endure the ice storm unprotected.  The emerging spear was damaged but it grew out of it, you can see it on the lower right in the first picture.

The rest that I have all grew in the same area that I raised this palm and are more stretched.  Morning sun/afternoon shade.  These are blue ones, I'll try and post a picture later.

Y'all got me wanting to pay closer attention to my Jubaea now!

To me it appears to constantly be putting up spears, and it's currently approaching about five and a half feet overall height.  Guess now's as good a time as any to start documenting it.

You should post it. Not too many of us can grow these.

Actually remembered I did start documenting it in another thread :floor: but never have I counted number of spears per year.  I'll count the current one developing as number 1 and go through Oct 1 next year.

September update.  Pushing the 8th new frond for this year.  Anybody know how many new fronds they can make per year?  I'm guessing eight is real good but I imagine they can do even more than that when they get bigger and better rooted.  I seem to recall it only made five last year.    Can't wait to see what it can do in 2022.

Looking good! It grew quite a bit this year. 8 fronds is really good. Mine will finish this year with 10 possibly 11 but not holding my breath. 

I dug mine out 3 years ago from my previous place & planted it summer of 2019. Like yours, it has been increasing the amount of fronds every year so we're in the same boat there. I bought it as a small 15 gallon from Jungle Music in 2010 & kepted it in the pot about 4 or 5 years which I regret.

I'm thinking mine should be about that size after next season.  I've only had it just over a year so far.

Wow, 10 fronds is awesome.  I'm hoping mine will do that next year.  Mine was a small 15 gallon in 2020 but I put it in the ground right away.  Yours would be massive if you did that when you got it.  Probably trunking size or close to it.

Yeah, the base was only 2" diameter when I got it last year.  It's now 10" diameter.
