Giant leaf not opening

One of my bird of paradise plants has grown a giant leaf, and it just keeps growing! Anyone know how long it should take to open? It’s been almost a month after it touched the ceilingβ€¦πŸ˜‚
1ft to light, direct
20” pot with drainage
Last watered 11 hours ago
That’s a huge bop. I have an orange one but he’s still a little guy. I would try misting a little more and it should open up better. Mine usually takes a couple of weeks to fully open. What will you do when it starts taking over the house πŸ˜‚
Holy BoP!! That’s incredible!!! How long have you had it?! That’s BoP goals right there!!!

I would imagine with a plant that size, it’ll do what it wants when it wants when it’s good and ready!!! 😍
@Ninabeena πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… thanks! I tried putting a humidifier right on it for a couple of days but that didn’t seem to do the trick. It will probably just open when it’s ready I guess. I’m going to have to move to a bigger house of course! Then I can get even more!
@sarahsalith Thanks!! I got these two in Feb β€˜23, so it’s only been a year and a half. They just must love the southwest windows in our morning room. I’ll keep feeding here and patiently waiting πŸ₯Ή
