If you look at the little Saba right next to it there is a new leaf that shot out about 5" long in one day-on Saturday.

Very happy about that because I wasn't sure if it would make it as it hadn't done anything since I bought it.

Saba should be a lot of fun next year,they are one of the biggest bananas in the world,I believe up to 40'
with massive trunks-just gotta find a place for it next year(-:

Thanks for pointing it out! It was hard to see with all the other greenery behind it. I also just got a saba and its probably only a little bit bigger than yours. They seem to grow surprisingly well indoors. I am REALLY looking forward to putting it in the ground. Im also not sure where I will put mine, but wherever it goes, its going to need a LOT of room!
Good luck!
