Although difficult to see, each new leaf is slightly larger than the one that preceded it. Currently, this is my only banana plant that has made that progress. However, this Winter has been unusually sunny. I should add that the atmosphere is CO2 enriched from ventless natural gas heaters. Also, this was the only banana plant that had a bad mite infestation when I brought it inside from outdoors. I eradicated it with Avid and Bifenthrin. Every plant in the greenhouse was sprayed multiple times and it was a growth setback.

I am glad mine looks almost as good as yours .lol almost
