Let $G$ be an amenable group of exponential growth and let $S$ be a finite symmetric generating set. For each $k$, let $B_{k}$ be the closed ball of radius $k$ about the identity element in the corresponding Cayley graph of $G$ and let $b_{k} = B_{k}$. If $\lim b_{k+1}/b_{k}$ exists, then $\lim b_{k+1}/b_{k} = \lim b_{k}^{1/k} > 1$ and this easily implies that no subsequence of the $B_{k}$ forms a Folner sequence for $G$. But is this also true for those amenable groups of exponential growth for which $\lim b_{k+1}/b_{k}$ does not exist?
