Default Flag Leaf

.It's been raining so much lately, I haven't been out much to check my plants. I had a nice suprise today. Flag leaf on my praying hands. Not bad for an old woman in Tennessee.

Cathy,
We were right, weren't we?!?!?! Congrats, and will be out as soon as I can to see it in person... Wish we could figure out how to get them close to harvesting, but gonna be a lot of praying for your Praying Hands!!! Hopefully, Mother Nature will cut you some slack and hold off winter for a LLLLOOOONNNNGGGG time!!! If not, hey, you can be proud that you were able to get it this far!!! Way to go!!!

Thanks all, I don't know what i'm going to do this winter. Maybe try to dig it up. It won't fit in my greenhouse anymore, but my uncle has a very large garage for his farm equipment, and he said i could overwinter it there.

Congrats!

I don't know much about the technical and artistic aspects of photographic composition, but that is probably the best photo example of what a flag leaf looks like. Might have to see how to get that in the wiki or something.

I think you have a few months until frost don't you? You might make it to harvest. We'll cross our fingers for you.

It's about 7 or 8 ft. tall. I planted it as a small pup last year. It grew like gangbusters last summer. I dug it up and potted it. I kept it in my greenhouse all winter, then planted it out again this spring. What i'd like to know now is, will it hurt the fruit production, if i take off a pup?

It could hurt the fruit production if you don't remove the pup. Let the corm under the "mother" plant devote its energy entirely to the one stalk.

Have you considered growing it leaning over in your greenhouse? If it is only 7-8 ft tall, and if you have the space in your greenhouse, it does not have to be vertical. One that I have outdoors is leaning almost 45 degrees--it bloomed in July.
