    Hi pink! :)

    Hmmm, tough question, not the giant but over 50 so not a little girl either. I'll have to think about this. :D

    It's weird though, it's just straight up, almost out of the water. Any idea why it's doing this?

    It's possible that it's going to bloom Lady J?

    I have no idea! :D Do they bloom--I've never had one before so not sure. It's been sprouting leaves like crazy though. Maybe it's going to sprout some little Chiquitas. :beer:

    I've made my decision: I'm the Chiquita banana lady. See above post. ;D

    I just did a wee bit of reading and it sounds as if it's going to start growing something similar to lily pads on the surface. I don't think they flower but not sure about that. The article did say that a person might want to cut those stems and pads off because after a lot of top growth the leaves underneath will be too shadowed and will wither.
