Seeds I purchased were suppose to be Cocothrinax Borhidiana , I’m thinking that’s not what these are

You are right, definitely not Cocothrinax Borhidiana. Not sure which Cocothrinax it is though.

Split leaf sheath would indicate a Thrinax.

I also think this is a Coccothrinax miraguama 

I'm always up for learning new things!

Cocothrinax for sure; very nice whatever kind it is @canefan!

Definitely NOT borhidiana! Here are two 5 gallon examples of plants I grew from seed (of known plants I collected seed from myself) to compare. You decide.

Left is miraguama specimen,right is argentata(collected from habitat on big pine key),Florida. If leaves are very stiff, as they appear; miraguama.  A little lax,but more closely matching fiber; argentata.Leaves look miraguama,fiber looks argentata🤷‍♂️:greenthumb:

It’s likely to be a mutt.   Some sort of miraguama hybrid I’d guess, mixed with something with more lax and thinner open fronds.   These hybridize so readily.  The hybrids can be really nice palms also.  It’s not a miriguama x borhidiana Cross.

If you plan on selling,it's the old 'Coccothrinax sp.' (with miraguama leanings) for the id tag...🤷‍♂️😄

Looks just like my C. miraguama at that size. A nice palm despite yours being mislabeled. I hope you have a great spot for it in the garden.

Another possible parent species contributing to the mix could be like this 'fragrens' I bought at a Florida palm sale. Has extra long petioles like yours,similar fiber,but leaf segments are a little flatter.:lol2:

Thank you
