Orrrr...it could take a few days from now. Depending on the shape of the fruit, you know? (IE. Praying Hands, others)

Yeah, this is kinda a long running contest compared to the others of just guessing hand/finger numbers... but I thought it'd be cool to have a different kind of contest rather than just guessing #'s. I was mad the last one, I was 3 #'s off!!! LOL

So...

What's the status on the contest? It's been 2 weeks since the last guess. Do we have a winner yet?

Hey guys, sorry, had to go through a major bathroom renovation and then had family visiting the week after so haven't had anytime to even get online, it's going to be at least 3 + months until the contest is over when the fruit is ripened and judged, but it's about time to end guessing and time to start posting pics of the plant and nanas 8-)

Well, you haven't officially announced the guessing ending yet so I'll throw in a guess. I hadn't followed up on this for a while and don't really have a good guess, but I'll follow Mitchel's lead and go for something that will be obvious if it ends up being correct:

Thousand Fingers

Now, will someone guess Truly Tiny so these ends?

Hi all, I'm going to have to end the guessing for this one and possibly also forefit the contest due to Fay damaging the plant and it toppled over. Reffer to this thread for more information and pics for now: Fay, West Florida Landfall possible? I'm going to try to see if the fruit will ripen but I doubt they will as they were less than two months since the bloom came out. I just started back to school taking 19 credit hours and between that and cleaning up from Fay I haven't had much time to spend here on the computer. I'll update with details later on this coming weekend and pictures from before the storms!
