Dypsis sp. 'metallic'

Looks a lot like palms Jeff was selling as Dypsis ampasandavae, now renamed Crysalidocarpus loucobensis. Here's mine:

The palm doesn't seem too happy, rarely holding more than two green leaves and not growing much. My "vatovavy blue" looks similar. I know this info duplicates what I posted earlier in this thread.

Mine opened up a new leaf about a month ago. I’m fairly certain that it’s a Sp Metallic because of the sheen, wide/thick leaflets, robust petioles, and the fact that it came in as Ovobontsira 8.5 years ago from RPS (I believe)
