I spent $10 and took Nancy's advice and bought a strep. This thing has 11 HUGE leaves, and the longest one (they all are about the same size) is 15 inches long. I kid you not! It's in a 5 inch pot and I'm not sure whether to re-pot it. I'm still trying to figure out what "flavor" it is as there was no marker on it. It's so big...looks like something from a jungle!!
