    Your not kidding about growing fast.
    Last weekend I placed it in my fish tank and it was 3/4" long. When I cleaned the tank this week it was 7" long with a 1" offshoot or two.

    Yes but first you have to get it to flower.

    Turions are a winter resting bud, they allow the plant to survive cold/freezing temps. They are basically just dense compact growth. If memeory serves me (and I might be remembering some other organism that does this) the cells if the tissue in the turions are saturated with glucose which keeps them from freezing.

    Pyro,
    Does this plant have to have a cold rest period?
    I have it in my 40 gallon fish tank with a temp of 75 degrees. If so I guess I will have to take it out in the fall and place it outside to start forming it's turions and then move it into the unheated garage. If I have a good amount this fall I guess I will try to keep some in the tank and see how it does.

    I don't know if it has strict requirements for dormancy. Mine didn't form turions till December after temps "plunged" to the 30s. And even then a number of branches continued growing and are currently still alive.
