I might add to the advise given, that the multiple leaves growing this year are
a normal development. As the plant matures, more and more will be made during
the growth cycle, until it unfurls dozens at once.  By that time, however, the
leaves will each be four feet long, making the plant  eight to nine feet in
diameter !  Don't fear though, that takes a while even under the best
conditions.
oddly enough, this palm look-alike is a gymnosperm (pine tree relative) and
doesn't flower, exactly, but rather produces BIG red seeds on a stunted leaf.
Other Cycads make real cones !
