Dwarf Sag Growth

I currently have a 20 gallon with miracgle grow organic soil capped with rock substrate, 60 watts of lighting, diy co2 and root tabs. I get about a new little leaf every 3 days. Im just wondering if this is considered to be fast growth? Should I start to dose with iron or potassium?

I would say that's a pretty fast growth. Mine aren't even growing :/

I've had them for a while.

Your growth seems normal/fast

Once the plant is well-rooted, it will grow faster.

My dwarf sag took a while to start growing, but once it finally did, it has really taken off.

I planted 4 dwarf sag originally, about a month later I still didn't have anything. I was beginning to think something was wrong, then last week, 4 turned into 8. Just noticed two more coming up today.

Just in case anyone was looking at this thread. My dwarf sag really did start taking off. I now have 11 runners all over the tank and notice a new one almost daily or every other day. It just took mine about 2 months to really grow.
