Well post pic and we'll see what you have.. One finger I'd say you might need to feed some more. My Caligold which is an orinoco type had 115 fingers.. I didn't have time to fill that many out and cut it down to 4 hands and probably cutting to 3 hands since there were alot of fingers per hand. More Potassium is in order.. but that's just what I think.. :^)
