Sure!
Provide the proper growing conditions!

You will need to let us know what you are doing to provide the optimal growing conditions for your plants.

No, that is not enough :mrgreen:

You will also need sufficient light and nutrient levels. Nymphaea appreciates a "rich" substrate and some added potassium.

Looks like that's enough light.

You can use Seachem Potassium, but if you can get the pure chemicals K2SO4 or KCl it would be cheaper in the long run.

You should also check your NO3 level. If it is zero, bumping it up to 5-10 ppm would improve plant growth. Red Sea makes a good inexpensive test kit, not sure if it is available where you live.

CO2 injection is another way to improve plant growth. Perhaps you do that already.

on the same general topic, is cutting mature leaves off of the rhysome and letting it float, the fastest way to get the plant to produce lots of little plantlets?

I suspect he is not injecting CO2. CO2 is the route to luscious plant success. CO2 is a macro (needed in large quantities)nutrient.Without it you'll get only mediocre results.
