Post Katahdin
One of my monster Elegans seedlings which I call 'Katahdin'.

This leaf is about 15 inches long and across as of today which is early and the whole plant takes up over 6 feet of space.

Just one of those fun ones you hang on to in your gardens.

Wow, that's a great, large one. How old is it and was it big from the beginning? Or what made you decide to keep it?

Thanks for the comments!

It is a clump that is about 5 years old and the round leaves is what made it stick around. Fast growth on this monster is both a plus and a minus. Did not plan on it taking up quite so much room.

Two plants that are comparable but not as big at this point are Lakeside Ugh Huh and Elegans itself (both pictured below).

A couple more monsters in the gardens are King Micheal (already 17 inches long) and T Rex (close behind with 16 inch leaves).

A lot of the monsters have way different looks.

Katahdin grew bigger then I had space Marc.

It now has a nice home in the country where it can get as big as it wants.

Moving it was very difficult but at least it can expand as it likes now.
