    I purchased a few Mammy plants some time ago. I noticed the other day that the leaves are much larger than on my existing Mammy. Is this because the plants are younger? Or is there a Super Mammy? Mammy in question on the left in the pics, my older Mammy on the right.

    Scott,
    The plants at my work are throwing the same type of leaves. It may be from winter but my theory is that perhaps the older leaves saw stronger light than the new growth.

    The existing Mammy is growing in 1/2 day full sun. Longest leaf I can find on the plant is 5".

    The Mammys purchased this Summer 10.5" leaves. The plants are growing in 1/2 day sun and still in the 1 gal. pot purchased in.

    Jerry, No nuclear reactors :) but maybe its the Miracle-Gro for acid loving plants they get fed every other week. But so do the older in ground plants.
