Default Q about my Dwarf Cav, again....

Now when a dwarf is supposed to get 5-7 ft. tall, is that the height of the p.stem or the height total foliage and all? And, (yes i have a million questions about everything) I'm sure my nanaer isnt anywhere near fruiting yet but, what are tell-tale signs it is ready to flower? does the stem have a bulge or all of a sudden bulk up? Just curiosity and boredom at work drive me to ask these things.

LOL! My house doesnt exist on the member map!

the new emerging leaves will start to get shorter and smaller and on the dc the stem will be a pretty good size by that time

The 5-7 ft is the stem height and the pups start to grow when fruiting time is near. You probably won't see a bulge as such, but the stem gets fatter at the top - then a short leaf followed by a very short strange leaf and the huge bud will follow. Exciting!!
