How can I make my dwarf sag put out runners

Hi planted tankers, I have a bunch of dwarf sags that are growing but won't spread - they're looking nice in their corner but I want a sag lawn! Everything I've read about how fast/easy they are to grow makes me think they should have taken over the tank by now.

It's a 15 gallon tank with 36 watts of light, diy CO2 at 15-30ppm, pH ~6.4, KH ~ 3, and pretty stable. Dose Flourish Comprehensive twice a week and all my other plants (vals, amazon swords, java ferns) grow really well. Bought the sags about 3mo ago, half of them died straightaway and all of them looked pretty sick. Don't think they liked being posted But for the past two months they've been putting out new leaves and are pearling by the end of the day. Just never any runners!

Can I do something to promote runnerage, or do I just need to be patient?

I have been waiting for mine forever too, and they are just starting to put out runners finally, I think this plant must take a while to get settled in and then go crazy, at least I hope
