Awesome. Have you started feeding it yet? It'll grow much faster if fed. You can use crushed bits of betta fish pellets (not the whole betta pellet until it's bigger), or bits of freeze dried bloodworm. Both are in the fish food aisle of pet stores and are very cheap.

I tried using a tiny piece of fish food, but it swelled up huge and then got all covered in fungus. Ended up losing a leaf. So, I caught the smallest ant I could find - and that worked. It went through the entire digestion process, ending with it kicking it off the center and over to the side.
