That's cool! I'm sure you're psyched.

Looks like it's coming from where the stem was cut off. The other cut off stem in the photo should do that as well.

Linda. Here is a picture of the whole plant.

Tropic. There is alot of areas that I cut leaves from because I freaked it out with misting. Got some sort of infection or something on some of the leaves so I cut them. I hope I get new leaves from all the cut offs, though I am sure I am asking too much.

Purple, I am totally psyched. I look at it everyday as if it is going to grow and inch over night or something. What a goof! HA

It's when you start tugging at the tips hoping that'll make them grow faster that you need to start worrying, LOL.

Ooh... off to tug tips...! Or do I need a leaf-stretcher?

LOL J/K. Good one, tropic!

When I sold furniture and people would hesitate, wondering if a particular couch would fit in their house, I'd tell them not to worry, the delivery guys will just bring the room-stretcher.

Tiff, not at all goofy. I check every plant daily too. Decided I need more flowers to deadhead next year, something that actually needs daily futzing. The house plants don't always appreciate some of my efforts - prematurely removing sheaths, helping leaves unroll, micro-managing vine progress, realizing I've pinched so many leaves "to encourage new growth" that a plant is now significantly smaller... Your plant looks GREAT! No danger of ants carrying that one away!
