The spath probably didn't out compete the hypoestes, that's just what hypoestes does. It's a pretty plant that turns ugly pretty quickly. I usually end up buying it because my wife is like "ooh pretty" so I get it for her so she doesn't complain about all the other houseplants I am buying for myself, then quietly toss it out once it's looking like crap and she's not paying attention. I got suckered into picking one up this summer, and when it started looking bad I threw a bunch of cuttings into my newly constructed DIY riparium hangers, and I gotta say that I like it much much better there than I ever did growing in a pot. Still a pain in the butt though.
