Leaf number 10 of 17 is 16.75" long.

~ October 17th.  Leaf  number 10 of 17 is 16.75" inches long.  I just can't quite call the new leaf an even 17 inches but its close. Almost a complete sweep with the number 17 ;) The new leaf  is 9" inches wide.

 ~ Cavendish's is 10" tall from top of corm(at soil) to where leaf emerges from the pseudostem.  He is also has a diameter of 8" inches.

~ There are not a whole lot of Gnats, but there a good number, so I added a good 1/4-1/2 layer of Diatomaceous Earth on the top soil.
