Yours looks like the one I named Cornish Grooved, which has some distinct differences to the Mulu type, even though grown from the same batch of seed brought back by Bleddyn.

See the differences HERE

I have 2 growing, this is my first year growing these, one in a pot and one in the ground that were both planted at the same time.

Biggest leaf so far in the pot is 31 cms and the one in the ground is 44 cms.

Mine seems a bit slow in producing big leaves this year. I've removed quite a few side shoots from the main stem and I'm still in the process of removing runners from all over the place in an attempt to get the plant to concentrate it's energy into the main growing point.

Cordy,
Remembered I had a recent pic (last month) of the mother plant to mine at D to J. Pretty much how I'd like mine to look in a few years.
