    Me and my poor memory.

    The NS is 4", tip to tip. If I measure from the largest part of the paddles, it's about 5". Leaf size is 6 - 7 inches.

    Sorry Eric: I looked at the plant again today. The longest leaf is closer to 9". The shortest one is 7.

    I noticed today, a slight fragrance that I'd call lemony.

    I suspect Eric is right -- the leaves will grow larger.
