I've only kept these for about six months now. I've had them in a couple of low tech tanks. It seems to grow very tall, but thin for me. I have a copy of the Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plans, and the listed max height is 14 inches. I'm seeing shoots easily reaching the top of the given tank. In my new 29g I have half of the shoots within a few inches of the surface (15-17").
Is this normal? Are the plants just young, and will the leaves thicken over time?
Also, who quickly with the plant itself add new shoots? It has been pretty slow going overall which I find surprising since the shoots have grown many inches since being added to the new tank.
