COMMENTS

Proposition: a(n) ends with exactly 2^n 9's.

The number of digits in a(n) is respectively 1, 5, 18, 73, 289, 1156, 4622, ... At each step until a(6), the number of digits of a(n+1) is nearly 4 times the number of digits of a(n), and exactly so from a(4) to a(5).

Sequence has doubly-exponential growth: log log a(n) ~ n. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 27 2020
