Nice seedlings!

You might want to speed up their growth with fertizilers if you haven't started yet. Here are two of my Phoenix dactylifera var medjool date palms seedlings, both are 12 months old as of now, one of them (the larger one) has been regularly feeded, the other one has only been watered, fertilizing makes a difference.

Wow. I had no idea fertilizer helps them that much! What kind do you recomend and would kitchen scraps work?

Date palm is a heavy feeder, so they will enjoy a top dressing of aged manure or worm castings or kitchen scraps (composted, not fresh) and regular feeding from early life stages, and even during the winter as they don't have vegetative rest when grown indoors (>50F). The ideal palm fertilizer has 8 percent nitrogen, 2 percent phosphorus, 12 percent potassium and 4 percent magnesium, so look for NPK 8-2-12 formula fertilizer, they're readily available.

Sorry, but I dont believe that the big one is only one year old.
I have grown many palms. I see date palms germinating everywhere in Spain.
A 12 months old seedling does not look like that.
