    Watching a banana grow.

    A new leaf is formed on Musa basjoo. It starts with a little threadlike squiggle.(arrow) Picture taken on July 1, 2007.

    Wow, John, That is amazing. Thanks for taking all that time to catch the progress. Its hard to believe that huge leaf comes from that little curly-Q. It just unfurls like a flag at the end doesn't it? I enjoyed watching the progression.
