It is looking good and I do not want to make any predictions but it would not be your normal yellow leave.

Hehe! :mmm:
That's a nice thick little leaf Chris. Lisa's article mentioned 100mm, so I hope I'm underestimating.
Let's hear other guesses! It's only for fun. :poke:

Anton, I think it was in the yearbook article. I remember finding it interesting because she mentioned the small percentages of really broad leaf plants that one could expect.
 
I wish we could get more estimates of how wide this plant's leaves can be expected to be, take a guess! Place your bets!
Chris, why don't you make a prize of some of this plant's seed to the closest suggestion?
